Durham Constabulary has charged a woman with wounding with intent following a disturbance in Seaham earlier this week.

He was taken by ambulance for treatment at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle, although his injuries are not thought to be serious.

A North East Ambulance spokesperson confirmed an air ambulance was called, but the man was taken to hospital by road with a doctor on board after it sent a Hazard Area Response Team and a double-crewed ambulance to the incident.
