Riot police dog suffered fractured skull

A police dog suffered a fractured skull after being hit by a brick in last week's riots in London.

Three-year-old Obi continued to work with his handler PC Phil Wells for several hours until they could assess his condition.

The German shepherd is receiving medication and treatment for the injury, but is expected to make a full recovery.
