Police in Poole are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing man.
Richard Gibbons, 54, was last seen at his home address in the Alderney area in the early hours of Thursday 18 April 2013. He has been upset recently and his family are concerned that he may come to some harm.
Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenage girl was injured in a dog attack on the Isle of Wight. A 17-year-old girl from Sandown was walking on land near the Fairway golf course on Saturday when it's alleged the animal jumped on her back, biting her left elbow.
A man pulled the dog, described as a Rottweiler-style breed, away from her by the collar. Anyone with information is asked to call Shanklin police or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
