A police officer from Lothian and Borders Police force has been awarded £200 compensation after he was bitten by a dog whose owner ordered it to attack him.

At a raid in Edinburgh in January PC Andrew McGhee was bitten by the dog and sustained puncture wounds to his bottom after the owner of the dog shouted at the dog to “bite”.

At Livingston Sheriff Court, the owner of the dog, Diane Bolton, plead guilty to inciting the dog attack and hitting another police officer.

PC McGhee was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary where he was treated with a tetanus injection and some anti-biotics.

At the Court hearing, the Sheriff ordered that the owner of the dog paid the officer £200 compensation for his injuries.
