A dispute over dog fouling in a park near Preston has seen a woman viciously attacked.


South Ribble Police are appealing for information to trace a woman suspected of launching a violent tirade and attack on a fellow dog walker.

Around 10.45am on Tuesday (21 November) the victim entered Cuerden Valley Park via the Sheephill Brow Clayton Brook entrance and was walking her dogs.

A woman, aged around 45, also came in via the same entrance and overtook the victim on the walk.

A short time later the victim highlighted to the offender that one of the dogs had fouled on a walk way and they should pick up their dog’s mess.
