Inquiries are ongoing into the circumstances around an attack on a dog, in which a woman and child suffered minor injuries.

Officers were called at around 11am on Wednesday (9 August) to a report of a dog attack in Vicar Water Country Park, Clipstone.

The dog, a one-year-old Dachshund, called Larry, died at the scene after it is believed he was attacked by four American Bulldogs.

The four dogs were seized under the Dangerous Dog Act and will be kept in a safe and secure environment whilst the investigation is conducted.

Larry's family has asked for privacy during this time and said: "We are heartbroken over what has happened. Larry was loved and cherished by all who met him, especially our three-year-old daughter who referred to him as her best friend."

Please note that this is an ongoing investigation and any speculation could damage the investigation.

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
