Police say a dangerous dog has been 'contained' after people were warned to stay indoors.

Officers were called to Cliff Gardens in Minster, Sheppey, near St George's Primary School, at 10.20am following a report that an unaccompanied dog had attacked another dog.

A spokesman said: "The dog is then reported to have been acting aggressively in the road and officers were deployed to the scene, where they currently remain.
