Police are appealing for information after an 11-year-old boy was bit by a white/grey and black husky type dog in Hartlepool.

At around 11:20am on Thursday 5th December, the boy was walking to a friend’s house after his school was closed by the severe weather. As they cut through Tredegar Walk in the town he was bit by the dog, which was on its own. The bite was serious and led to the child being hospitalised for four days. The dog had a black collar with spikes on.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or who knows the dog’s owner is asked to contact officers on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
