Detective Inspector Ruby Burrow, of Nottinghamshire Police, described the incident as “shocking”. “This was a very serious assault on a police officer who was going about their lawful business,” she said.

“The level of violence that the officer experienced was shocking and will not be tolerated. The force treats knife crime extremely seriously and will continue to take robust action against anyone involved in this sort of criminality.”

Superintendent Kathryn Craner, the force’s knife crime lead, added: “Anyone who decides to carry a knife in public is placing themselves and others at considerable risk of serious harm. That’s why we work so hard every day, working closely with our partners, to prevent people from making such decisions in the first place and to educate them of the serious consequences.”
