Police warning about laser lights

Police are reminding islanders about the dangers of laser lights after one was shone at the Airport Control Tower last night.
 
Although the light was not directed at any aircraft officers are taking the opportunity to advise people about the dangers.
 
Officers received 27 calls about laser lights last year including shining them at cars, into windows and on rare occasions when they are directed towards planes.
 
Acting Chief Inspector Alan Williamson said: "The practice of shining laser lights is incredibly serious. It is an offence to endanger aircraft and such behaviour is reckless and highly dangerous.
 
"What I would ask is that parents talk to their children about the dangers of laser lights as we find these incidents so normally involve children who do not understand the gravity of their actions.
