Dog Attack Injures Eleven Children

At least eleven children have been injured, after a dog attack in a fenced-off play park in Blyth, in northern England.

Eleven children have been injured in a dog attack in a fenced-off play park.

The Staffordshire bull terrier was restrained by a parent after biting the children in Blyth, Northumberland.

Three of the children, who all suffered bite wounds as they were trapped in the park, were kept in hospital overnight after the attack, which happened at about 18:30 BST on Wednesday.

Police later arrested a 37-year-old woman on suspicion of having a dog dangerously out of control.

Among the injured, a seven-year-old girl was expected to need skin grafts.

The father of one of the injured children managed to tie the dog to a fence with a cardigan, before police arrived to transport it to kennels.
