Three people, including two children, have suffered “significant” injuries after a dog attack in Stevenage this afternoon.

A 25–year–old woman and two children, aged four and two, were injured by a pair of dogs in Newcastle Close, Great Ashby, at around 12.33pm today.

The ambulance service attended and confirmed all three victims are currently in hospital having suffered “significant facial injuries”.

The 25–year–old will require a skin graft for her forehead, while the two-year-old boy has suffered a fractured skull.

Two dogs, both Rottweilers, have been seized by police and officers remain at the scene at this time.
