Carlisle girl, 8, taken to hospital after dog attack

A young girl needed hospital treatment after being attacked by a dog.

The child, believed to be eight, was bitten on the back by the bull mastiff in Newfield Drive, off Kingstown Road, in Carlisle.

She was taken to the city’s Cumberland Infirmary following the incident on Sunday morning but was not seriously injured.

A spokeswoman for Cumbria police confirmed that they had been called at about 10.15am.

“The owner of the dog and the family of the girl have reached a resolution,” she said.

“The dog is in kennels and scheduled to be destroyed in the coming days.”

The spokeswoman added: “The girl was not seriously injured but was left very shaken.”
