POLICE have seized a 'dangerous dog' following an incident in Flintshire on Sunday.

Police said officers obtained a warrant to search a property in the Buckley area on Monday, and have seized a dog believed to be involved in a 'dangerous dog' incident.

The dog has been taken to a secure location while officers continue their investigation, police said.

A South Flintshire Police spokesman said: "Today (Monday) we obtained a search warrant from the magistrates court to search an address in Buckley in relation to a dangerous dog incident that took place yesterday (Sunday).

"We would like to reassure the public that the animal in question has now been seized and is in a secure location whilst we continue with our investigation."
