A one-year-old girl is in a serious condition after being bitten by a dog.

The child was attacked in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, on Tuesday evening.

Derbyshire Police said officers and ambulance crews were called to a house in Beech Avenue at about 5.40pm.

Derbyshire Police has also appealed for information over an unconnected dog attack in Long Eaton in which an 86-year-old man was injured.

The incident happened at around 11am on 3 February as the man walked on Meadow Lane.

The force said the victim was attacked by “two German Shepherd-type dogs” who left two bite marks.

PCSO Matt Boyer said: “One of the bites to his arm is particularly nasty and will require skin grafting. He has been left very shaken after the attack.”
