Dog Tasered after biting Met Police officer

A dog has been Tasered by police after biting an officer in north-west London, the Metropolitan Police has said.

The incident happened about midday on Friday on Engineers Way outside Wembley Stadium when officers responded to reports of a man with his dog breaching an injunction prohibiting him from the area.

After the man was detained his dog bit an officer and became aggressive towards other officers and "a Taser was discharged", a Met spokesperson said.

The bitten officer received hospital treatment and has been discharged but police are still trying find the animal.

The force said officers were "making enquiries to locate the dog".

The man was arrested on suspicion of assault, breach of an injunction and having a dangerous dog out of control.
