The Guide Dogs charity, formerly Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, is to be invited to address a meeting of the council’s Environment Committee about the increasing number of attacks on guide dogs.

At their September meeting, committee members agreed to issue the invite after concerns about dog attacks on guide dogs were raised by Cllr Robert Hill.

The DUP man told the meeting that there had been a worrying increase in the number of recorded attacks in recent years.
