A 30-year-old man will appear in court this morning following an alleged attack in which a police officer suffered severe burns.

Blagovest Hadjigueorguiev, of no fixed abode, has been charged with grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent against a police officer and arson with intent to endanger life.


Chief Superintendent Ian Drummond-Smith provided an update on the officer’s condition on Twitter on Saturday morning, writing: “An officer was airlifted to Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske, with serious burns.

“He was later transferred to Derriford Hospital, where he remains in a stable condition. He is sat up and in good spirits.”
