Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses to the at­tack, be­tween 12.15pm and 1.30pm on April 20. Spokesman Rosie Alexan­der said the two-year-old girl was bit­ten by a dog that was tied up to a metal bar out­side the main doors of the store. Af­ter bit­ing the child the dog, a five-year-old black and tan al­sa­tian­labrador cross, was moved away and tied up near the bi­cy­cle rack, where it later bit a man, bruis­ing his wrist. She said that ac­cord­ing to its owner the dog does not have an ag­gres­sive na­ture and this be­hav­iour was out of char­ac­ter. Po­lice are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate and any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact PC Kerry Wood on 07870 252947. Tesco spokesman Adam Fish­ers said while they wished the vic­tims a speedy re­cov­ery for what was clearly a nasty in­ci­dent they could not be blamed. He said: “Dogs are the re­spon­si­bil­ity of cus­tomers and we make no spe­cial ar­range­ments for an­i­mals to be left at the store en­trance so there is no way that we are li­able.” A CHAR­ITY boot fair at 7am at Or­bital Park, Ash­ford, on Bank Hol­i­day Mon­day will raise cash for the Pil­grims Hospice, Kent Air Am­bu­lance and Demelza House chil­dren’s hospice. For de­tails, ring Ray Scott on 07814 620122.
