An 11-year-old boy has suffered what are being described as 'significant facial injuries' after being bitten by a dog in North Yorkshire.

Police have now released CCTV images of men they want to speak to about the incident which happened in Robin Hood's Bay.

The boy - who needed plastic surgery - was injured just after 6.10pm on Thursday 17 August, when he was bitten by a brindle coloured Boxer dog outside the Fish and Chip shop on Albion Road.

The boy, who is from the South Yorkshire area, was taken to Scarborough Hospital by road ambulance before being transferred to York.
