Guernsey Police officer assaulted

A Guernsey Police officer has been taken to hospital after being assaulted.

A spokesman said the uniformed officer was injured just before 11:00 GMT at the Salerie Car Park, in St Peter Port.

The officer was taken to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital suffering from a facial injury.

Police said a man had been arrested nearby on suspicion of the assault, but wanted anyone who was in the area at the time to call the police.

Officers said they were particularly interested in speaking to two people who were in a yellow van, a woman on a bicycle and a person in a red coat seen walking nearby.
