Dog 'deliberately' dragged behind Porsche in Sussex

A Porsche driver deliberately drove with a dog tied to the back of the car, Sussex Police have said.

Officers said the beagle-collie cross, suffered "horrific" injuries.

The black Carrera was seen at the Devil's Dyke car park near Brighton on Sunday at about 22:00 GMT, dragging the beagle-collie cross behind it.

The car was then spotted at 22:30 on the A27 still dragging the dog along before it pulled into a lay-by near the Southwick Tunnel.

Police have identified the dog but have been unable to speak to its owner.

PC Scott Walters said: "The injuries this dog suffered were horrific. It has been distressing for everyone involved."

Officers are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
