The attack happened on Sunday, July 13 at 10.05am adjacent to the Tesco's service station at the A149 in Stalham and police are appealing for witnesses.

The injured woman was walking with her husband and black Labrador and as they passed another female walking her dog, it bit her left thigh. The owner of the dog did stop and talk to the victim, but then walked off.

Police want to trace the owner of the dog who is described as white, in her late 50's to early 60's with short brown hair. She is thought to be about 5ft and of small to medium build. The dog is described as black, possibly a border collie or a sheltie.
