A PSNI vehicle came under attack while on patrol in Carrickfergus in the early hours of the morning.

Sergeant Brian Caskey explains what happened: "Two officers were inside the car conducting a mobile patrol of the town when the incident occurred early this morning.

"The vehicle was exiting the Pinewood Avenue area at around 2am when a male dressed in a dark hooded jacket with his face covered emerged from an alleyway and threw a brick at the vehicle.

"The brick struck the windscreen in front of the driver, smashing it."

The man who threw the brick ran off and the officers were shaken but unharmed.
