Laser Pen Danger

There were two incidents over the weekend of 18 and 19 August 2012, in the Tunbridge Wells and Cranbrook areas respectively, of laser pens being shone at flying aircraft cockpits. The incidents occurred around 11pm.

This is extremely dangerous and irresponsible and could have devastating consequences.

Kent Police will take robust action against people caught doing this, and they can expect a severe punishment.

If anyone has any information about who might have done this over the weekend, please contact Kent Police on 101 and quote Laser Pens.
