“He was faced with hostility from a large crowd on his own and as you can see in the footage was attacked and bitten. This officer is a dedicated ward officer on Hillingdon Borough. This kind of behaviour against our officers is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We have now charged two of the suspects involved. The officer is recovering and is being fully supported.” – Gary Taylor
