Met Police launch investigation into case of 19-year-old injured by police dog

The Metropolitan Police have launched an investigation into the case of a young man who was attacked by a police dog in the street – after officers were called to deal with an incident in east London.

Nineteen-year-old Lavell Williams was left with serious injuries and permanent scarring to his arm – and his family says his mental health is still badly affected.

Scotland Yard said they would make sure that the full facts were examined in detail.
