Eleven-year-old Jack Mackay had his face savaged by a dog while trying to protect his mum and baby brother.

Jack was playing outside his home in Eltham, south London last week when the dog and its owner were walking past, the dog became disturbed by the noise of the children playing and attacked Jack's mum who was carrying his eight month old brother.

Jack tried to intervene and was savaged, the police say they can't do anything because the attack happened on private land.
