Postie welcomes dog attack laws

A postman from Sheffield who was attacked on his round by two dogs has welcomed the announcement that part of the dangerous dogs act is to be extended. Paul Coleman still bares the scars of when he was set upon by the Staffordshire crosses five years ago.

Both his legs were so badly bitten that he is now registered as disabled. He says the change, which will make it legal to prosecute owners whose animals have attacked people on PRIVATE land, is a law he's been campaigning for.
