ELEVEN police officers were assaulted in Hampshire over the weekend.

Hampshire police federation chairman John Apter took to Twitter as part of his campaign highlighting the number of attacks.

He said: ‘Over this past weekend 11 of our officers were assaulted in separate incidents across the force area.’

Mr Apter wants the Home Office to collate national data.
