The PSNI has released pictures of weapons confiscated in two incidents by one of its dog handlers.

The weapons were taken in two separate incidents in Belfast on Wednesday.

In one incident a metal bar was taken from a man who had concealed it on his person and had been harassing members of the public.

Another incident saw an officer attacked with a Celtic-themed rounders bat during a routine traffic stop.

Writing on Facebook, a police spokesperson said: "Thankfully neither the officer or other members of the public were injured during both incidents."

Both individuals will now appear in court for their actions, they added.
