Police are investigating after three people were bitten by a dog in Birmingham yesterday (Saturday, September 9).

An 11-year-old girl ran past the dog as it was being walked by its owner in Bordesley Green, when she was bitten. Two men intervened but were bitten and left with injuries to their shoulders and arms.

They were taken to hospital to be treated for their injuries. Police said the girl sustained similar injuries, but they are not thought to be life-threatening.

The dog was initially taken to a local vet to be checked over before being taken into secure kennels while the investigation continues. The owner of the dog has been spoken to by officers, police said.
