Sergeant James Hirst, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Assaults on police officers are utterly unacceptable and will always be met with a very firm response. Our officers and other members of the emergency services go to work each day with one goal in mind – to keep the public safe.

“They deserve to return home to their families unharmed at the end of every shift. When that doesn’t happen we will leave no stone unturned in order to bring offenders to justice.”

Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to call 101 quoting incident 39 of 20 December 2021.
