The incident happened in Manchester involving what's thought to be an American Bulldog, like the one here (NOT the actual dog)
Four people are in hospital after being attacked by a dog in north Manchester.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the American Bulldog is still trapped inside the house, and police are at the scene.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said officers were called to Bluestone Road in Moston just before 1pm to reports that a dog had attacked four people.

The victims' ages are unknown but it's believed at least one was a child.

Police have said that the dog is an 'American Bulldog-type' animal. The American Bulldog is not a banned breed under the Dangerous Dogs Act - and is not to be confused with the American Pit Bull Terrier, which IS banned.

Police say all four people have suffered 'serious injuries' but none of them are thought to be life-threatening. They have confirmed that the on-going incident at the property is now over, and the dog has been seized.

A police spokesperson said, "Police were called shortly after 12.50pm today to a home on Bluestone Road, Moston, to a report of a dog out of control.

Officers attended and discovered an American Bulldog-type dog had attacked four people.

They have all attended hospital and it is not yet clear what injuries have been sustained.

The dog is currently contained in the property and officers are at the scene."
