A dog has died after being attacked by two others in Great Yarmouth - and police now want to find the offending animals’ owner.

The incident happened between 4.30pm and 5pm on Thursday (February 7), Norfolk Constabulary have said.

A woman was walking her dog along Breydon Water near Broadland-Great Yarmouth rugby club when two dogs - described as a yellow Labrador and a brown Staffordshire terrier - attacked her dog.

The victim’s dog was taken to the vet for treatment but was put to sleep as a result of the injuries.
