Multiple police officers were assaulted in just one night in Norfolk.

The incidents saw officers kicked, cut, bitten and bruised as they worked.

One had to have their head glued, two required A&E treatment and one was bitten. 

Chairman of the Norfolk Police Federation Andy Symonds took to Twitter to express his upset at the incidents:


Five of my colleagues assaulted last night for just doing their job.

Various injuries including kicks, cuts, bruising to head, officer bitten.

Two officers required A&E treatment.

One had to have head glued.

My colleagues are human beings, not inanimate objects to be attacked."

The chairman went on to say he would be catching up with the injured officers tomorrow 'to see how they are and to make sure they have been appropriately supported.'
