A man has admitted attacking two police officers as they attended a "domestic incident" in Hampshire.

Police said the officers were injured after being called to Merlin Road, Farnborough, on 12 July.

They were taken to hospital - one with a cut to his shoulder, the other with a cut to his hand - and later discharged.

Buttling, of Merlin Road, has been remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced at Winchester Crown Court on Friday 6 October.
