More than 1,000 protesters converged on the giant Ratcliffe-on-Soar site in Nottinghamshire on Saturday.

Violence broke out as a breakaway group tried to tear up perimeter fencing.

One protester, Laura McFarlane-Shopes, 23, wore a bandage on her arm to cover a dog bite she said had received.

"We were near the fence and some people were trying to get over. I was just in front of them," she said.

"Horses and dogs started charging down. Police shouted that they were coming. They let the dogs on to me and one leaped up and bit my arm." Nottinghamshire Police confirmed reports of some protesters receiving dog bites but denied officers had set the dogs on anyone.

A police spokesman said: "Dogs have remained on their leads at all times. If people have received dog bites, that's regrettable, but dogs are a legitimate way of helping to maintain order."

During the skirmishes one policeman was airlifted to hospital with head injuries but later released.

Two other officers needed hospital treatment for minor injuries, Nottinghamshire Police said.

A total of 56 people were arrested on suspicion of committing offences including aggravated trespass and criminal damage.
