A DOG has died after being severely injured in an attack from an XL Bully in Bridport.

A West Highland Terrier (Westie) was attacked by a stray dog off Wellfields Drive in Bridport at around 9.44am on Saturday, April 20.

The Westie was taken to the vet and was sadly put down due to the injuries sustained.

Officers attended and the stray dog, suspected to be an XL Bully, was taken to the vet.

A spokesperson for Dorset Police said: "Enquiries are continuing and we would ask the owner of the stray dog to please get in touch quoting incident number 20:137.

"Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111."
