There have been new calls for increased public protection from dangerous dogs, after another child was mauled to death at the weekend.
Nine-year-old Frankie Macritchie was staying with his family at a holiday park in Cornwall, when he was fatally attacked by a ‘bulldog-type breed’.
A 28-year-old woman, thought to be the dog's owner, fled the scene but was arrested in connection with the death later that day. But who should be held responsible?
MPs have previously considered banning breeds such as Staffordshire Bull Terriers, but Staffie owner Ira Moss says they’re just as loving as any pet, who like all dogs require specific care and attention.
Ira joins us today with her Staffie Abi, alongside our vet Scott Miller who says leaving any dog unattended with children, is like leaving them with a loaded weapon.
