A spokesman for BTP said: "It was another busy night for the night shift with officers dealing with several incidents as well as arrests through the night."

He added: "Alcohol-related incidents are on the increase on the lead-up to Christmas.

"Being drunk is not an excuse for committing offences."

The officer was not injured during the attack.
