Hospital treats more bite victims
Latest figures have shown an increase in the number of people being treated for dog bites in Guernsey.

Hospital staff dealt with 43 incidents last year compared to 36 during 2006.

Statistics from the Health and Social Services Department show nearly 500 people have been treated over the past 10 years after being bitten by a dog.

Last year's total was the fourth highest of the last decade. In 2000, 61 people needed treatment, while in 1998 there were 56.
