170 Humberside Police Officers spat at in last 6 months.

That is despite every member of staff being handed out guards in September.

Our investigations show in the first 6 months since they were rolled out across the force they have protected officers just 37 times.

But there has been over 170 cases of staff being spat at during that period.
