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.
