Milan’s famed cathedral is in need of repairs after it was hit by a camera-equipped drone that was being operated by a group of tourists.

Three holidaymakers, all from South Korea, were snapping aerial photos of the attraction when the mishap occurred.

It’s the latest in a series of drone-related incidents involving tourists, who have sparked security scares in major cities and led to the remote-control devices being banned near landmarks and in national parks around the world.

In the Milan incident, three men, aged 35, 39 and 42, were flying the drone around the roof of the Gothic cathedral, which is the fifth largest church in the world, on Monday morning.

The small device caught the attention of Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo, the cathedral’s guards, who alerted police, The Local reported.

The men were still operating the drone when police arrived at the square in front of the church.
But they soon lost control of the drone, which crashed into a construction cable on the roof, near the statue of Madonnina.

The crash caused minor damage to the cathedral, and the men were questioned by police, The Local reported.

It is not known if they will be charged with a crime.
They were in Milan to give a presentation at the Korean pavilion at Expo 2015.
Milan Cathedral was under continuous construction and renovation projects for nearly 600 years until it was officially completed in 1965.
Several holidaymakers have found themselves in trouble for flying remote control drones at or near tourist attractions, including a handful of incidents in France.
Last October an Israeli tourist was arrested in front of Notre Dame Cathedral while flying a drone above some of Paris’ top attractions.

The 24-year-old man spent a night in jail and was fined £310 before he was released.

Earlier this year, drones sparked repeated security scares in the French capital in the weeks following the deadly attack on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters.

At least five drones were spotted illegally flying around city landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, and the US Embassy.
