Three boys have had to be rescued from Black Mountain, on the edge of west Belfast.
At about 9.45pm on Thursday night, police received a report that three young boys – two aged 12 and one aged 14 – had become stuck.
The police helicopter was tasked to conduct a search of the mountain and located the boys shortly before 10.30pm.
It landed a short distance away and a member of the aircraft crew assisted them.
They were then airlifted to a nearby sports pitch.
The three boys were cold but otherwise unharmed.
