Police are investigating after a laser was reportedly shone at a moving train in Peterborough.

British Transport Police say it was reportedly pointed at the cab on Saturday night.

It comes days after a laser was pointed at a light aircraft in the St Neots area.

The pilot managed to turn back to Cambridge after becoming aware of it last Tuesday evening (16th February). Police are treating it as "endangering an aircraft".

Meanwhile a US bound flight had to return to Heathrow Airport a few days before that, after a laser was shone into the cockpit leaving the co-pilot feeling unwell.
