Two "large aggressive dogs" believed to have attacked and injured two men near Bristol have been seized by police.

One man has been arrested in connection with the incident after the animals were found at an address in the city on Sunday evening, Avon and Somerset Police said in a statement.

Police had been looking for the dogs after officers on patrol were flagged down by two men in Bishport Avenue, Hartcliffe, at approximately 10.50am on Sunday morning who said they had been wounded by two dogs.

The pair went to hospital for treatment for their injuries while police, including armed officers, carried out inquiries in the area to try to find the dogs.

There were no reports of further injuries.

The force described the two dogs as "large, aggressive dogs roaming loose" and said they should not be approached if spotted.

One, reported to be injured, was described as light brown speckled, while the other was said to be dark brown in colour.

The public was told to keep unaccompanied children away from the Hartcliffe area while searches continued.
