A woman was bit on the wrist by a dangerous dog in Welwyn – and police have now released a picture of a man they believe could help with their enquiries.

On Monday, February 24, in Mardley Woods, at around 1.10pm, a woman in her fifties was walking her two dogs when she came across a man with a Wire-haired pointer.

The dog attacked one of the woman’s dogs and as she tried to help, it bit her on the wrist.

Police Constable Ross Freeman said: “This was a frightening incident and the victim was left with a nasty bruise on her wrist.
