Chingford: Man Avoids Jail After Dog Attack
A man whose dog bit off part of a six-year-old girl's ear in a Chingford park has been given a 12-week suspended jail term.
56-year-old Gary Hindley, of Woodberry Way, Chingford, Essex, admitted allowing a dog to be dangerously out of control in a public place and causing injury under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, after his dog mauled the child in a park in Essex last month.
Hindley was sentenced at London's Thames Magistrates' Court today (Monday February 13th) for his role in the incident, which resulted in the child having part of her ear bitten off as well as sustaining injuries to her neck and shoulder. His sentence was suspended for two years.
A domestic abuse hub has been officially opened in a bid to provide more support to victims across South Essex.
Around 100 firefighters have been tackling a blaze at a packaging warehouse.
Michael Barrymore is entitled to "more than nominal" damages against Essex Police over his wrongful arrest.
