A campaign to protect postmen from dangerous dogs is launched today.
According to the Royal Mail, there have been almost 350 attacks on postmen, like Paul Coleman from Sheffield, in our region in the past year.
Paul was savaged by two dogs, who tore chunks out of his leg.
The Royal Mail is asking owners to supervise dogs at all times and have handed out ninety thousand "posting pegs", to put through letterboxes, to protect postmen's fingers.
