The tweet was commented on in a really-tweet by Superintendent Roy Smith who said: “Please share far and wide so that those responsible for this cowardly attack on a @metpoliceuk medic are held to account for their disgusting behaviour.”
Smith also commented:“Attacks on police officers, as with an attack on any emergency service worker, are attacks on the basic fabric of a civilised society.
“The sole purpose of deploying police medics to an event is to ensure the safety of those attending and provide care to those who require it.
“We have a dedicated team in place to investigate incidents like this at public order events, and rest assured we will not stop until those responsible are identified and brought to justice.
“I would urge anyone who has information relating to this sickening and cowardly attack to come forward, which you can do in complete confidence. I appeal to those involved, those who were with them on the day, or those who know who they are to do the right thing and come forward.”
