MP’s Bill could help solve the laser menace
Since 2014 there have been almost 6,500 police reports nationally involving laser pens. It is an issue that presents an everyday danger to airline pilots, so much so that the crew of one Virgin Atlantic flight took the decision to return to Heathrow after reportedly being attacked with a laser. It was not an isolated incident. More than half of British pilots say they have been attacked by lasers in the past year.
