Owners of dogs that attack postal workers delivering mail could face much heavier punishments after a report called for tougher legislation.

The Royal Mail vowed to take more "robust" legal action against people responsible for dangerous dogs, with the animals estimated to carry out 5,000 attacks on post men and women every year.

Former High Court judge Sir Gordon Langley highlighted that court action currently cannot be taken if an attack takes place on private property.
