Armed police attended alongside a dog unit and the ambulance service. Five people were taken to hospital with leg injuries, with one of the victims seriously injured. The dog was seized by police and two people were arrested. Officers remained at the scene this morning.
An 18-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman - both from Hatfield - have been arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a dangerous dog. They remain in police custody.
