A 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was sentenced to a 12 month youth rehabilitation order and a 12 month supervision order.

Policing Commander for South Worcestershire, Superintendent Kevin Purcell said: "It is completely unacceptable that police officers working hard to keep our communities safe should face this sort of treatment.

"I hope this demonstrates that West Mercia Police will not tolerate this kind of behaviour, and will always take action to ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice."
