Two dogs shot in London by police: Man charged after Limehouse ‘dangerous dogs’ incident

A woman reported her pet being attacked and sustained a leg injury during the incident.

A man has been charged following an incident in which two “dangerous” dogs were put down.

At just after 5pm on Sunday evening (May 7), police were called to a report of a woman being attacked by a dog in Commercial Road in Limehouse in east London.

Officers found a woman who reported two dogs had attacked her own dog. She had suffered an injury to her leg but did not require hospital treatment.

Met Police officers found a man with two aggressive dogs. Video footage showed the dogs being shot and a Taser was fired in the course of the arrest.

Louie Turnbull, 46, of no fixed address, was today charged with being the person/owner of a dog that was dangerously out of control and being in possession/custody of a dog whilst disqualified from owning or keeping a dog.

Turnbull was due to appear at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (May 9).

The Met Police says its Directorate of Professional Standards has conducted a review of the incident, including all of the available body worn footage, and is satisfied that there are no concerns around officer conduct.
