They probably didn't fool anyone I am sure they would were spotted, they did not come close to an aircraft as far as I can see, the airport was closed so it would be a proportional response to the situation, I understand the frustrations of all concerned but we in the UK do not live in a police state nor do we shoot first and ask questions later.

Had the airport been open I suspect the response would have been more robust to protect them from themselves.

Given the former docks are busy with boats all the time (a mate used to dragon boat there) its not really a surprise that someone has hopped aboard HMS London City.
