Horse riders in Berkshire who were the victims of a vicious

:00:00.:00:11.

dog attack are calling on the government to review the law.

:00:12.:00:13.

The attack on two horses and their riders left one

:00:14.:00:16.

of the animals needing six and a half hours of surgery.

:00:17.:00:19.

And its owner says she's shocked that the police say no

:00:20.:00:21.

Anna Bunton still has nightmares about the attack.

:00:22.:00:32.

Her horse Mo's injuries were so severe,

:00:33.:00:34.

to stop the bleeding and carefully stitch her back together again.

:00:35.:00:41.

The dog which attacked them was a Staffordshire Bull Terrier

:00:42.:00:44.

As soon as it started biting, it just turned into a wild animal and

:00:45.:01:05.

it was jumping for the jugular. It took off with the dog still biting

:01:06.:01:10.

at the back legs and then the dog that my leg and hung on for quite a

:01:11.:01:15.

long time and all I remember was just seeing its face lunging at us

:01:16.:01:21.

at every conceivable angle. I wasn't aware of those injuries until I had

:01:22.:01:25.

walked away and could see the blood on her.

:01:26.:01:26.

The dog's owner eventually managed to get the dog off,

:01:27.:01:28.

but then let it go again and it went for Lauren Colwell's

:01:29.:01:31.

She had a massive cut on her leg. The vet shaved the area and said it

:01:32.:01:41.

was a lot worse than it looked because of the possession. If it had

:01:42.:01:45.

been another half an inch we could be looking at having to get her put

:01:46.:01:53.

down. In a statement Thames Valley Police said officers investigated

:01:54.:01:56.

the incident and it was established no criminal incident had occurred.

:01:57.:02:00.

The incident was resolved at the satisfaction of the owner of the dog

:02:01.:02:06.

and of the horse. They are far from satisfied. They have started a

:02:07.:02:09.

parliamentary petition for the law to be reviewed. I just want there to

:02:10.:02:15.

be a re-evaluation of the laws. It was in a public place, the animal

:02:16.:02:22.

was injured and humans were injured and the owner allowed to walk away

:02:23.:02:25.

without punishment. Physical wounds are healing that Anna hasn't found

the courage to take habit of the yard for a ride.

:02:31.:02:31.

An inquest jury has concluded that neglect contributed to the suicide

:02:32.:02:34.

of a 22-year-old man in Winchester prison.

:02:35.:02:35.

Daryl Hargrave, who had a history of mental health issues,

:02:36.:02:38.

was found hanged in his cell in July 2015.

:02:39.:02:40.

The inquest heard that he had been on remand for six days.

:02:41.:02:43.

The jury found there was a failure to provide treatment for psychosis

:02:44.:02:46.

and a decision not to put him on constant supervision also

:02:47.:02:48.

We feel that the jury couldn't have done any more. They have said it all

:02:49.:03:10.

in one word, neglect. What do you hope will be the legacy? We pray

:03:11.:03:24.

that his death all we can ask is that lessons are learned and for the

things are strict, you cannot have food and said, a bottle of water,

what are you going to do? I keep my car clean and tidy like most of the

guys do. I can't see why the council want to award you points. My car is

:05:29.:05:36.

always clean anyway. They don't pay me enough to drive over the limit! I

just think it is crazy. What has Mid-Sussex Council said

with our regional weather forecast. Good evening. A lovely day for most

:06:37.:06:45.

and we saw a high of 18 Celsius and tomorrow could be warmer. Turning

:06:46.:06:50.

chilly with mist and fog patches developing in the early hours and

:06:51.:06:54.

maybe the odd pockets of frost. We could see the temperature falls to

:06:55.:07:01.

one Celsius. Mist and fog could and once it does we will have blue skies

above. It could be higher than today reaching a high of 20. It will feel

:07:09.:07:12.

cooler along the coast with the slight breeze from the south-east

:07:13.:07:16.

but the temperature will do well in line and it could be warmer still

:07:17.:07:20.

through Thursday with the temperature reaching a high of 21,

:07:21.:07:26.

so the weekend will be dry and settled with high, warm

:07:27.:07:29.

temperatures, but cooler into next week.

:07:30.:07:32.

Monday, and north-westerly wind will drag in more cloud and temperatures

will be down by 8-9 . Hello, my advice would be to make

will be a good day love sunshine on offer and it will continue to warm

up as well. This picture was taken in Cumbria, at Workington, later in

the afternoon. We got the sunshine eventually in northern England but

it's in the Northwest we have the lowest temperatures at the moment.

Under clear skies, it's turning quite chilly. There's
