A man and his daughter will face trial next year accused of breaching the Dangerous Dogs Act after two rottweilers attacked a postman.

Robert Stewart, 44, and Emma Stewart, 22, both of Cambridge, appeared before magistrates in the city, accused of being responsible for a dog which caused injury on private property.

Magistrates committed the case to Cambridge Crown Court and the Stewarts are scheduled to appear before a judge on January 8 for a pre-trial hearing. Both were remanded on bail.





Postman Keith Davies, who is in his mid-50s, suffered severe injuries and needed surgery as a result of the attack in the week before Christmas 2008.
