HALIFAX - Halifax police say a military helicopter has been forced to make an emergency landing in a vacant lot.

Const. Pierre Bourdages says the Department of National Defence contacted police advising them that a helicopter was experiencing difficulties and needed to make an emergency landing.

Bourdages says the chopper landed in a vacant gravel lot near a grocery store on Peakview Way off Larry Uteck Boulevard in the Halifax suburb of Bedford.

He says military police and paramedics were called to the scene, but they don't believed anyone was injured.

Bourdages says traffic was not disrupted.
