The hunt to trace the owner of a boxer dog is under way after the animal attacked a woman and her pet dog, leaving them shaken by the incident.

Police said that a woman was walking her dog on North Beach in Lowestoft - close to Links Hill - about 11.45am on Wednesday, October 19 when the boxer dog came over and "started attacking her dog".
