POLICE are appealing for information after a woman was attacked by a dog in Colchester.

The woman in her 40s from Colchester was walking her dog on a recreation ground near to Abbots Road when she was attacked by a tanned boxer dog.

The dog was not on a lead and she received bruising and a cut to her right shin. The incident happened at around 1.50pm on Wednesday January 30.
