A police officer has pleaded guilty to assaulting a woman.

PC Rebecca Barnett, 33, of Wood End, Banbury, admitted one count of causing grievous bodily harm without intent at a hearing at Oxford Crown Court earlier.

It follows an incident in the town on 10 June last year when a 29-year-old woman was assaulted on Addison Road.

Thames Valley Police said it had suspended Barnett from her duties. She will be sentenced on 11 June.

Barnett was off-duty at the time of the assault, police said.
