Woman questioned over dog attack
Police have questioned the owner of a Jack Russell after a dog attacked a 10-year-old boy leaving him needing nine stitches.

It is alleged the boy asked the woman if he could stroke her dog at Tesco in Whitfield, but the animal attacked him and the woman then walked away.

Officers said a 46-year-old woman from the town had been questioned.

Police investigating the incident on 19 November said it was up to the lawyers to decide whether to prosecute.
