A man has been charged with kidnap and a range of motoring offences after a car carrying two young children was stolen in Belfast.

The incident happened in the Boucher Crescent area shortly before 5.30pm on Saturday.

The man jumped into the driver seat of the car after a woman got out of the vehicle. He drove off with the children inside.

Police said members of the public managed to stop the car and the man made off on foot.

A PSNI spokesman said the children were unharmed.

On Sunday police charged a 35-year-old man with kidnap and assault and a range of driving offences.

He is to appear in court on Monday morning.
