And in an emotional post on social media, Sergeant Boyd shared how PC Dave Parr and PCSO Steve Tarabella were attacked as they gave chase.

He said: "This guy has punched Dave Parr twice to the face causing a laceration to his head and he’s bit the PCSO as well.

“It’s just disgusting. I can't swear – I feel like I want to swear. What an idiot. Just a piece of scum, assaulting our officers.”

Sgt Boyd added: “I cannot rave about our team enough… what they’ll do to protect the community from these drug pushers – these idiots. They are absolutely disgusting people.”

The man – who was also in breach of his court-imposed bail conditions – was taken into custody and Class A drugs were found following a strip search.
