Middlesbrough girl, 6, watches dog die in 'vicious' attack

A six-year-old girl watched as her pet dog was killed in a "vicious" attack in Middlesbrough.

Evie Honeyman was walking Chihuahua Rolo with her grandmother near her home in Eston, when her dog and her grandmother were attacked by a boxer dog.

Rolo died of his injuries. Winifred Honeyman, 68, was bitten by the dog and needed hospital treatment.

Evie's mum Julie, said it was "disgraceful" the owner of the dog stood and watched the attack.
