---- — NORTH ANDOVER — A plane that lost power in one of its engines landed safely at Lawrence Municipal Airport yesterday afternoon, police said.

The pilot reported that while one of the engines was not working, the plane had plenty of fuel, according to Lt. Charles Gray, spokesman for the North Andover Police Department. The pilot circled a couple of times and attempted to restart the engine, then landed without incident, Gray said.

Both the Police and Fire departments went to the airport as a precaution. The incident was reported at 4:15 p.m.
