The incident occurred outside Redz bar in the High Street, at around 1.50am on Sunday, February 2.

Officers had been called to the location following a report of an assault.

While in attendance, members of the public reportedly became aggressive and made threats towards the officers before a male police constable was punched in the head.

Two men, a 26 and 27-year-old, both from Hemel, were arrested and have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

The 27-year-old was arrested on suspicion of affray and assault on police, while the 26-year-old was arrested on suspicion of affray and assault with intent to resist arrest.
