Or what charge will it amount to except the charge of S.21 as I have already used that so it cannot be used in this instance...
All you would need is the interference with a persons health and comfort: R v Miller
And must not be wholly insignificant or trivial: R v Chan Fook
It wouldn’t be S20 GBH
As a wound is defined as where there is a break in the continuity of the skin: Moriarty v Brookes
And an internal rupture of blood vessels will not constitute a wound: C v Eisenhower (a bruise basically)

Most likely will be battery though. R v Ireland: unlawful application of force on the V by the D. Here all elements are fulfilled.
