A man is being hailed a hero by neighbours after he stepped in to save a woman and boy being mauled by a dog in Manchester.
The dog attacked the woman and a teenager in the street in Harpurhey.
When Neil Twigg saw what was happening he started to fight the animal off.
But when that didn't deter the dog he ran to his kitchen for a knife.
Rob Smith has been talking to him. And a warning that this report contains images you may find distressing from the start:-
