Woman charged over elderly couple dog attack in Edinburgh

A woman has been charged with an offence under the Dangerous Dogs Act after an elderly couple were attacked by a dog in Edinburgh.

The 71-year-old man and 65-year-old woman were walking in the north of the city when the incident happened.

It took place at about 16:00 on Friday in the park at the junction of Boswall Parkway, Grierson Road and Boswall Drive.

The 49-year-old will now be reported to the procurator fiscal.

The unrestrained dog was described as being a pit bull type breed.

The couple, who had been walking their own dog at the time, were treated in hospital for their injuries, but were released the same day.
