The case of a postman from Milton Keynes who needed 100 stitches to his face after a dog attack is highlighted in a new campaign.

Royal Mail and the Communication Workers Union say 5,000 postal workers and around 400 telecom engineers are attacked by dogs every year.

They want new laws to protect people attacked on private property.
