The injured man was taken to hospital and his injuries are not deemed to be life-altering or life-threatening.

Detective Sergeant Emma Pollard, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This type of behaviour won’t be tolerated and the officers involved deserve credit for getting to the scene so quickly to break up the fight.

“We have arrested a suspect in connection with this assault but our enquiries are very much still ongoing.

“That said, we are satisfied the two men involved are known to each other and there was no threat to anyone else.”
