Pictures have been posted on social media showing the injuries a police dog sustained while on duty in Bromyard.

Bacca allegedly suffered a knife wound to the left side of his head while his handler's hand was also injured during the early morning incident in the town's High Street.

A 30-year-old man has been charged in connection with Wednesday's alleged attack.

Bacca and his handler are now recovering from their injuries, police said.

The police dog section posted the pictures on Twitter, with a force chief thanking people for their well wishes and saying both PD Bacca and his handler had "received treatment and thankfully are in recovery".
