Horses and riders attacked by dog at Camber
The owner of a dog that attacked horses and riders on the beach at Camber on New Year’s Eve is being sought by police.

A grey horse was bitten on its right shoulder, resulting in a wound that required hospital treatment.
Police would like to speak to the owner who is described as white, dark-haired, wearing a red coat, yellow scarf, blue jeans and wellingtons. It is thought that he was accompanied by a woman.
