A man has been charged after two police officers had to be rushed to hospital because of a knife attack.

The pair were injured after going to a Hampshire address to make an arrest in relation to a domestic assault.

Christopher Buttling, 32, of Merlin Road, Farnborough, has been charged with grievous bodily harm and cannabis production and is due to appear at Basingstoke magistrates today.

The officers were confronted with a man holding a knife when entering a property in Farnborough on Wednesday evening.

Both had to be taken to hospital after one suffered a cut to his shoulder and the other a cut to his hand.
