A woman has been reported to the procurator fiscal over a dog attack on an elderly woman and her Jack Russell.

The 78-year-old was walking her dog in Johnstone Avenue, Kilsyth, North Lanarkshire, at about 2pm yesterday when they were allegedly set upon by what was thought to be a Staffordshire terrier being walked by another woman.

The woman was taken to Monklands Hospital in Airdrie for treatment while the Jack Russell was checked by a local vet.

Police appealed earlier to try and trace the Staffie and its owner.

A spokeswoman later said a 31-year-old woman has now been reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with the incident.
