A dog has mauled a baby girl, leaving her seriously injured at a house in Derbyshire.

Police were called to this road in Derbyshire where a dog mauled a one-year-old girl in a house yesterday, leaving her seriously injured
A Derbyshire police spokesperson said: ‘Officers were called to a house in Long Eaton yesterday after a young child was bitten by a dog.
‘Police and ambulance crews were called to a house in Beech Avenue at about 5.40pm.
‘A one-year-old girl was treated at the scene and then taken to hospital for further treatment. She remains in a serious condition. The dog has been seized by officers.’
It is the second time a dog attack has been reported in Long Eaton in just over a week.
An 86-year-old man suffered horrific injuries when he was attacked by two dogs while he was walking in the town.
Police appealed for the public’s help after the man received two severe bite marks following the incident last Monday (February 3) in Meadow Lane.
The man was attacked by two German Shepherd dogs and will require skin graft surgery due to the damage caused to his arms.
