A MAN has been jailed after attacking a paramedic in Hereford.

Luke Berry admitted the offence when he appeared before magistrates in Kidderminster.

The court heard Berry had assaulted an on-duty paramedic in Hereford on April 5.

The 27-year-old also admitted breaching the terms of a community order imposed by magistrates in January last year by committing a further offence.

Magistrates said the offence was aggravated due to Berry's previous record of offending and as he was subject to a community order at the time.

Berry, who is of no fixed address, was jailed for four months. He must also pay a £128 victim surcharge.
