Police say dog attack could be "terrible accident"

Inspector Richard Quinn, from Cumbria Police said:

"The dog is currently in our care. Because a child is involved we need the full facts before we can determine what should be done with it.

"At this stage we haven't had an opportunity to interview the parents but we believe this may have been a terrible accident."
