Two men have been taken to hospital after being attacked by two “aggressive” dogs on the loose near Bristol.

Officers out on patrol were flagged down by two men in Bishport Avenue, Hartcliffe, at approximately 10.50am on Sunday morning who said they had been wounded by two dogs.

The two men, who were injured, went to hospital for treatment while officers, including armed officers, carried out enquiries in the area to try to find the dogs.

“At this time we would like to reassure the public we have received no other reports today of injuries relating to these two dogs.”

They later added: “We’re grateful for the public’s patience while we’ve been dealing with an incident involving dogs in Hartcliffe.

“Two men were wounded by dogs and have attended hospital. Enquiries are ongoing to identify the dogs’ owner(s).”
