A man who threatened to “set the dogs” on police when they attended a caravan site in Suffolk has been fined in court.

Magistrates in Ipswich heard how two officers attended an area in Castleton Way, Eye, near the A140 on December 9, 2018 to speak with some people at the site in connection with the theft of copper piping.

Police were speaking to some children and one woman when a small Jack Russell bit one of the officers.

David Allan, defending, entered a guilty plea on behalf of Price, who was not present in court.

Magistrates fined Price £40, and he must also pay £105 in costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
