A MAN who claims he was assaulted on his doorstep has slammed police after it took 28 hours for an officer to come and visit him.
Iain Purdy called police at 4pm on July 13, after being allegedly headbutted by a man at his home in Sunningdale Mews, WGC.
He was told a car would be sent immediately but it failed to show until the following day.
Mr Purdy said this was "not good enough" and will now be writing to MP Grant Shapps and Hertfordshire Chief Constable Frank Whiteley to complain.
