A MAN who attacked two police officers has been fined.

Ryan Parker, of Gadwall Reach, Kelvedon, denied assaulting PC Wilkinson and PC Eldered when he appeared at Colchester Magistrates Court on Monday, April 8.

However, following a short trial he was convicted of attacking the two officers in two separate incidents which occurred in Halstead and Sible Hedingham on November 11.

Parker was also convicted of harassing an individual in Sible Hedingham on the same day, a charge he had denied.

Magistrates handed Parker £90 fines for each count of assault, on top of a £180 fine for harassment.

He was also ordered to pay a further £330 in costs.
