She was punched in the head and body by a man and a woman shortly after arriving at the scene following reports of a disturbance.

Police said today that a 58-year-old woman had been knocked unconscious nearby.

The PC was accompanied to the scene by a number of officers.

While she did not suffer serious injuries, the 58-year-old was taken by ambulance to the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven for treatment.

She was released later last night.

A 33-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of police assault and assault with intent to prevent arrest.

They remain in police custody this morning.

Copeland Sergeant Laura Robinson said the policewoman suffered a few bruises and was recovering after her ordeal.

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
