    Q144: I have been assaulted, will the police take photos of my injuries?

    The police do not take pictures of injuries from assaults on every occasion. The decision as to whether photographs are taken will be dependent upon whether it is necessary as part of an investigation into an offence.

    Generally, if you have attended a hospital or doctor's surgery, the medical notes will suffice as evidence if the case goes to court.
