'It just missed a couple of the houses'

A man has been sentenced to a year in prison for endangering the safety of an aircraft after he grabbed a helicopter as it took off in Bristol.

Bristol Crown Court was told Houshang Jafari, 58, became "extremely angry" after the helicopter landed near his flat, causing debris to hit his car.

Police released part of the 999 call made to them by a concerned neighbour who saw the incident.
