A dog walker was attacked and bitten by another dog while walking her pet.

The incident took place at around 5pm on Monday, October 7 on the footpath running through the nature reserve between Spring Lane and Beetons Way.

The victim was walking her dog when another dog on a long lead came towards her.

As she put her hand out to greet it, the dog bit her, causing her hand to bleed. The victim subsequently needed to take medication for the bite.

Police would like to speak to the owner of this dog, who is described as a white man aged around 30.

The dog is described as a possible Corgi-Jack Russell cross or similar with a golden tan colour. It is believed to be called Jack.
