WITNESSES SOUGHT Fair way to raise cash
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.
