A man has been charged after a laser was shone at a police helicopter in Cheshire.

The laser was directed at the cockpit of Cheshire Constabulary's aircraft as it flew over Winsford on Wednesday night, police said.

The 27-year-old from Winsford is charged with recklessly endangering an aircraft.

He is due to appear before magistrates in Northwich next month, a police spokesman said.
