Police are investigating after a laser was shot at the Wiltshire Air Ambulance last night [20 February].
The Bell 429 helicopter was landing near Chippenham when it was targeted by the bright green light at around 7.30pm.
The crew decided to abort the landing at the designated site near Hardenhuish School.
The helicopter continued to be targeted with the laser even after it pulled away from the area.
The laser is thought to have been pointed from the vicinity of Ladyfield Road, Lackham Circus or Stockwood Road, Chippenham.
Thankfully, the crew were on a training flight and no patients were involved in the incident.
The service urge people to think of the consequences of using lasers to interfere with aircraft in flight.
The crew returned to the airbase near Melksham following the incident where they had an eye test.
They were all cleared for work and were fit to continue their shift.
Wiltshire Police are investigating the incident and are asking anyone with information to get in touch.
