Two 18-year-old men have been charged after a burglary at Larne ambulance station.

Ambulance crew disturbed the men trying to steal a television when they arrived back at the station shortly after 02:00 BST on Sunday.

Both men have been released in bail and are due to appear at Larne Magistrates' Court on 28 October.

John McPoland from the ambulance service said he was "extremely saddened" by the incident.

"Our stations serve the needs of the community and it is regrettable that there are some who will target their own communities in this way," he said.
