Three people have been released on bail after a dog attack in Herefordshire that left a woman in hospital with serious injuries.

The woman was airlifted after being bitten by two dogs - believed to be a bull mastiff and Staffordshire bull terrier - on Saturday in Bridge Street, Leominster.

West Mercia Police said she remained in a stable condition.

A 50-year-old woman and two men, aged 21 and 26, were questioned by police.

'Bull mastiff'

All three have now been released on police bail.

The force said investigations were ongoing and called on anyone with information to contact them.

Members of the public attempted to restrain the dogs, with one passer-by saying the attack went on for about 15 minutes.

Two other women were injured in the attack and received medical attention.

One dog, believed to be a bull mastiff, that was restrained by police, died at the scene. The other dog was seized by officers.
