A teenager has been chased by three men carrying hammers who had broken into his home on the outskirts of west Belfast.

The 19-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman arrived home at Glenwood Green in Poleglass at about 19:00 BST on Friday when they were confronted by the gang.

The men ran after the teenager, but he managed to escape uninjured.
