Four people have been injured following a dog attack in the Pwllheli area.

Police attended an address in the Rhoshirwaun area shortly before 11.30am on Friday, November 17th in response to reports of a dangerous dog incident.

Emergency services attended the scene which subsequently resulted in two people being airlifted to hospital with serious injuries. A further two people sustained minor injuries.

Following the incident, a total of 37 dogs and a number of cats have been seized from the address. The dog involved in the incident was destroyed and is yet to be examined by a vet to establish the breed.
