Please note, there are details and images in this film that some people may find upsetting.
When police officers put on their uniforms, they don’t expect to end their shift lying in a hospital bed.
This was the harsh reality for response officers Geoff Hill and Karl Odgers, after they were attacked while attending a domestic incident in Aldershot on the evening of Tuesday 7 February.
The man responsible, Simon Priest, viciously attacked both officers, punching them and repeatedly stamping on their heads.
Today, Priest, of Pegasus Avenue, Aldershot, was given a life sentence after admitting five offences, including causing GBH with intent.
