Welsh cops getting abused more by the public report reveals

A survey has found that police officers in Wales are being verbally and physically assaulted more often than their counterparts in England during the response to the pandemic.
Figures from the Police Federation of England and Wales show officers in Wales have been more likely to be insulted, threatened, hit or kicked since the start of the pandemic in March last year.
In Wales, 888 officers took part in the survey.
Of those, 35 per cent said they were verbally insulted at least once a week, 24 per cent said they were verbally threatened at least once a week and 17 per cent said they were physically attacked without a weapon at least once a week.
This was about six or seven per cent higher than the equivalent responses from officers in England.
