Boys hurt after dog attack

Map of Tyne and Wear
A 12-year-old boy in Newcastle is getting better in hospital after he was attacked by a dog.

He was bitten on both arms by the dog, and has had an operation to help his skin recover from the attack.

Another boy, 15, was also attacked, and was bitten on his left hip. It's thought the dog belonged to the parents of the older boy.

The owners of the dog later gave permission for the animal to be put down.
