A young boy was injured after being chased by a dog while walking in Clevedon.

Police are appealing for information as they try to trace people who were walking the dog at Clevedon's Marine Lake when the incident occurred.

It happened at around 4pm on Sunday, May 22, when an 11-year-old boy was chased by a dog, an Avon and Somerset Police spokesperson said.

"The large dog caused the boy to fall and hurt his leg," the spokesperson said.

"It took place in an area where dogs are not allowed.

"We would like to speak to the two people in the CCTV images who we believe have information which could help the investigation."

The couple are described as a white woman in her late 40s, of medium build, with shoulder-length blonde hair.
