What does ABH mean?

This is an offence under section 47 of the Offences Against the Person Act. This provides that a person is guilty of an offence if any assault results in injury causing actual bodily harm.

The definition of assault is quite wide. This usually involves people who have been involved in some form of fighting or altercation. It does not happen to be just kicks or punches at camp for example, but can include any injury caused by a person to another.
