A woman was knocked over by an out of control dog on the outskirts of St Albans.

The incident took place in Chiswell Green Lane at around 11.30am, on Thursday, May 28 when a large Alsation dog chased a woman and her child, knocking the woman over.

A member of the public then rang the police.

PC Clare Lapenna said: “The dog was displaying aggressive behaviour towards members of the public in this area and we have received complaints from people who feared for their safety as it was snarling at them, barking and bearing its teeth.

“We’d specifically like to speak to the lady that was knocked over by the dog to check on her welfare and make sure she and her child were not injured during the incident.
