A woman is being treated for injuries to her face and legs after she was attacked by a dog at her Sussex flat.

Emergency services were called to Clarendon House, in Hove, on Saturday to reports of a woman on the roof of the building screaming for help.

Officers said she had climbed out of her flat to escape the dog.

Insp Diane Lewis said the dog was removed from the premises by trained dog unit officers and later destroyed. She did not reveal the dog's breed.

The woman was taken to the Queen Victoria Hospital, in East Grinstead.
