Detective Sergeant Jo Eaton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We’ve routinely said that we will never tolerate this kind of behaviour against any of our officers or emergency service workers, who dedicate their lives and time to protecting the community from harm.

“Our officers put on their uniforms each day to go out onto the streets and keep everyone safe and are there to help should they ever be needed. No one should have to go to work and be physically or verbally assaulted just for doing their job.

“Thankfully neither of the officers were seriously injured as a result of the assaults and both are being supported by specially trained officers.

“I want to reiterate once more that anyone who believes it is acceptable to assault any officer or emergency service worker that we will thoroughly investigate and take the appropriate action.”
