A young boy received cuts and bruising to his face after being attacked by a dog tied up outside a Suffolk supermarket.

The victim was walking with his father near the Co-op in Elizabeth Avenue, Newmarket, at approximately 4pm on September 5 when he was attacked by a large dog with brown fur.

The boy had stretched his hand out before the dog jumped up and bit him, causing a minor injury to his lip and bruising to his nose.
