We’d like to warn people that there’s a white American Bulldog loose in the area.
It’s a very large dog, weighing around 70kg, which potentially poses a danger to the public.
We’d like to reassure the local community that police, including specialist dog units, and our colleagues from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service are patrolling the area to try to find the dog.
If you see the dog, please do not approach it and call police on 999.
