When the police arrived Bailey appeared to be arguing with a woman and became aggressive when police tried to handcuff him because of his drunken state.

Peter Fenn, prosecuting said: "He was eventually restrained but he continued to swear and struggle and was placed in the police van where he kicked out at the cage."

He added that Pc Brown and Pc Oliver had received hospital treatment and antibiotics because of the bite wounds.

Mr Fenn told the court Bailey had a record for violence including causing actual bodily harm and common assault.
