A man has been attacked by four bull terriers in a public park.

The 68-year-old was walking his dog in a park in Brechin, Angus, at around 2pm today when he was attacked by four brindle coloured Staffordshire bull terriers.

Police believe the attack may be linked to a similar incident that occurred in Montrose on February 3, and are appealing for witnesses.
