Police have hit out after a laser pen was shone at aircraft over the Glengormley area.

It is understood the device was shone at the flights at approximately 10pm on May 2 as they approached Belfast International Airport.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “If you know anyone out there who was running round with the laser pen, perhaps a member of your family has recently bought one, can it be put beyond use before someone gets hurt.”
