A general purpose police dog has been praised after being called upon to help disperse an angry crowd last night (5th November).
Merseyside Police officers came under attack after yobs started hurling bricks and fireworks at them.
Back-up was requested by officers who were on the scene, at which point PD ‘Annie’ and her handler swiftly arrived at the location.
With a few barks of encouragement and thanks to a sneak preview of her teeth, it did not take police dog Annie long to convince the petulant and angry mob to disperse from the area as they run off into the night.
“Last night [5th November] PD Annie was called upon to ‘persuade’ a large hostile crowd throwing fireworks and bricks at officers to disperse…rather quickly!
“Then a few hours later she located some clothing discarded by a motorbike thief”.
Even though bonfire night 2020 will be remembered by the emergency services for being the ‘quietest’ bonfire night in the last 15-20 years, some nasty individuals still could not stop themselves from attacking members of the emergency services.
But thank to police dog Annie, the officers who attended this call for help (made by a member of the public) were not injured.
