Claire Neale denies owning Blyth park attack dog
A woman has denied being the owner of a dog dangerously out of control after 12 people were attacked in a play park in Blyth.
Nine youngsters needed hospital treatment after the incident with a brown-coloured Staffordshire bull terrier dog at the park in Burns Avenue on 20 May.
Claire Neale, 37, of Chasedale Crescent in Blyth, denied the charge at Newcastle Crown Court.
A trial date has been set for February.
Ms Neale was granted bail on the condition she lives in South Tyneside, does not enter Blyth and does not own a dog.
