The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee street party turned fatal yesterday as a two-year-old boy was mauled by two dogs believed to be Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

A 49-year-old man was also injured as he tried to pull the animals off the boy, who was later airlifted to hospital.

Police informed they seized the dogs following the incident, which caused panic in a back garden in the Swanage Walk area of Moredon in Swindon, Wiltshire.

The boy is being treated at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol, where he has undergone surgery.

A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said no one had been arrested in connection with the incident. It is not clear whether the dogs were loose or on a lead.

The police spokesman elaborated, “At approximately 6pm yesterday, an incident occurred in Swanage Walk, Swindon, whereby a two-year-old local boy was injured by two dogs.”

“The child was taken to Frenchay Hospital with serious facial injuries and is currently receiving treatment”, he said, further adding, “A 49-year-old local man was also injured and received treatment for a hand injury which is not thought to be serious.”
Investigating officers have appealed for anyone with information about the attack to contact them.

The whole of Great Britain is braced for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year, and the authorities are taking all possible measures to ensure the frolics don’t turn foul.
