A 29-year-old man has admitted recklessly putting the life of an officer in danger as he damaged a police van.

Nicholas Damms, of Barretts Orchard, Cleobury Mortimer, pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal damage to the Vauxhall Vivaro van and being reckless as to whether the life of the officer was endangered.

He also admitted a charge of dangerous driving during the incident in October last year in Kidderminster Road, Bromsgrove.

A pre-sentence report was ordered and Damms was remanded in custody. He is due to return to Worcester Crown Court on February 24.
