A five-year-old boy was bitten by a dog while riding his scooter outside a mini-supermarket in Kettering.

The child was riding past the cashpoint outside Tesco Express in London Road when a dog lunged at him and bit his leg, causing reddening and a bite mark.

The incident happened at about 5.30pm on Thursday, June 26, but police have only now appealed for witnesses.

The dog was with a man who was using the cashpoint. He was white, aged about 50, about 5ft 11in tall, slim and with a fair complexion.

He had grey, messy hair brushed backwards and was wearing a grey jumper with dark jeans.

The dog was chocolate brown with white paws and had a wide, muscular build and short legs.

Witnesses should call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
