Dagenham dog seized after two attacks
Police have seized a suspected dangerous dog thought to have been involved in two attacks on residents from a Dagenham address.
Officers from Barking and Dagenham Police visited the Woodward Road following allegations of dog bites in May and June 2012.
They seized a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and arrested a man and woman, who were charged with offences under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991.
