Lincolnshire police have confirmed they are investigating a second attack by a dog in Lincoln. Officers were called to a house on Keats Close in the city at around 1.45pm after reports that a 38-year-old woman had been bitten by a dog.
The woman suffered bites and a suspected broken arm inflicted by a Staffordshire bull terrier while intervening in a fight between two dogs. Armed officers went to the address and the dog was destroyed with owner's consent.
Two other dogs in the vicinity have been taken into the care of the Lincoln city council dog warden pending the identification of their owners.
