A man has described the moment he saved a woman and 14-year-old boy from being mauled by a dog in Manchester.
Neil Twigg saw the dog attacking the pair on Watfield Walk in Harpurhey yesterday.
After neighbours tried to fight the dog off, he stabbed the animal to death with a kitchen knife.
Police are investigating the incident.
Neil says killing the dog was a last resort.
