It’s been a busy weekend for emergency services in Herefordshire, with West Mercia Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service and Hereford and Worcester Fire & Rescue Service called out to several incidents across the county.

On Saturday evening, a man was arrested after a woman reported that she had been assaulted in Hereford yesterday evening. West Mercia Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service and Hereford & Worcester Fire & Rescue Service were called to Pomona Place in the Whitecross area of Hereford at just after 7pm on Saturday evening.

Local residents reported a significant amount of activity in the area and that it appeared to be as a result of a disturbance at flats in the area. Access to the nearby Sainsbury’s store was blocked.
