A KNIFEMAN who attacked a police officer while armed with a four-inch blade and a baseball bat has been jailed.

Daniel Hughes, from Dallam, was handed 18 months behind bars at Chester Crown Court on Thursday, July 23.

The 22-year-old, of Marshall Avenue, admitted assaulting an emergency services worker, possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and possession of a bladed article in a public place.

These charges relate to an incident on Old Hall Road, Old Hall, back in March.
