A boy, 5, was bitten by a dog on the way home from school yesterday.

Here’s the post from the Polegate Resindets communtiy page: “Everyone look out!

My 5yo son has just been bitten (thankfully not badly) by a border terrier outside the pet shop on the way home from school.

Also barked loudly. Totally unprovoked.

Lady owner apologised and walked off. Hopefully it won’t do it again, but please be careful.”

The boy’s skin was not broken but he will have bruises for a few days.
