A popular country park in Leicestershire is urging dog owners to keep control of their pets this Bank Holiday Monday after seeing an increase in deer attacks.

The Bradgate Park Trust say dogs are to blame for the deaths of 30 deer during this winter and spring.

Deer are heavily pregnant at this time of year and they are asking people to stop their dogs from chasing them.
