A woman who was twice in charge of dogs which bit people in Bristol has been spared prison. Sian Jones, 35, was sitting on a wall in the Bedminster area of the city, with her American bulldog Sasha on June 3 last year, when it jumped up at a woman walking past and bit her on the abdomen.

Just over a month later Jones was in charge of her partner's dog Lennox when she became involved in a fight with a woman.

The Staffordshire bull terrier lunged at the woman and bit her on the lower leg.

Only a few months previously, on March 1 and 2, Sasha had jumped up at a woman and then bared its teeth at another woman and her eight-year-old daughter. Appearing at Bristol Crown Court on Friday, Jones pleaded guilty to four counts of having a dog dangerously out of control in a public place. She was sentenced to a two-year community order.
