Three year old is attacked by dog

Police are appealing for witnesses after a three-year-old girl was bitten by a dog in Hastings Country Park, Fairlight.

The girl was walking with her mother in the park when a black and white border collie bit the child on the leg at Fire Hills at 5pm on Tuesday 19 July.

PC Aydin Misiri said: “We have so far been unable to trace the owner of the dog despite having made inquiries in the area.

“We need to speak to the dog owner about what happened. Anyone with information should email quoting serial 1483 of 19/07, or call 101.
