Police are asking a man to make contact after a dog killed a swan.

They said it happened at Hammonds Pond in Carlisle yesterday (May 24), and while investigations are ongoing, they urged a man who was identified to be wearing a grey top and black trousers, with a black dog, to make contact.

A Cumbria police spokesperson said: "Officers would like to reassure the public that this is an isolated incident.

"We would ask dog owners to use leads and restraints with their dogs when using our parks and green spaces in order to avoid further incidents and the potential for a criminal record."
