Henry Grain, who is 20 years-old and from Worcester Road, Leominster, has been sentenced to two years in a youth offenders’ institution after he assaulted a paramedic so severely, he broke their jaw.

During the incident, which happened at around 9.00pm outside Shooters Bar in Leominster on Friday 4 March 2022, Grain also damaged the ambulance that was sent to take him to hospital. As a result of his damaging the ambulance, it was taken out of service to be repaired.

Grain pleaded guilty to the charges of grievous bodily harm and two counts of criminal damage and was sentenced on Tuesday 31 January at Worcester Crown Court.

The incident was the first time that body worn camera footage was provided to the police by the West Midlands Ambulance service as part of an investigation into an assault of a member of the ambulance service.

PC Harriet Wilson-Hill said: “The outcome of this case should serve as a reminder that assaulting an emergency service employee will not go unpunished. I welcome Grain’s sentence and I hope that it reassures our community of our how seriously we and the Court take this type of crime and that they will hand down a custodial sentence representative of the severity of the offence.”
