A young child has suffered facial injuries and a fractured arm after being attacked by a dog in Hampshire. The toddler was taken to hospital following the incident, reportedly involving a Staffordshire bull terrier, which happened in Tennyson Crescent, Waterlooville, on Tuesday. A 40-year-old man from Waterlooville has been arrested on suspicion of owning or being in charge of a dog dangerously out of control and causing injury. A 27-year-old woman from Hayling Island has been arrested on suspicion of assault or neglect of a child. Staffordshire bull terriers or 'staffies' were voted Britain's favourite dog in 2019 and the breed is described by the Kennel Club as 'wonderful family pet'.
