A woman was left with bite wounds to her hand following a dog attack.

The woman in her 30s was walking her terrier when another dog, described as a Pitbull, grabbed the terrier causing puncture wounds to his neck and back.

The owner made attempts to separate the dogs and suffered a number of cuts to her hands as a result, which required hospital treatment. The terrier also needed veterinary treatment for his wounds.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the dog attack which took place on the Old Hunstanton Beach between 3.30pm and 3.45pm on Friday, April 30.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning the pitbull and its owner, who was a man.

Anyone with information should contact PC Chris Stevens at Hunstanton Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
