A police dog is recovering after being struck by a brick in the Tottenham riots and suffering a fractured skull.
Three-year-old German Shepherd Obi was with trainer Constable Phil Wells in the midst of the violence last weekend when he was hit by one of the many missiles aimed at police.
Constable Wells said the incident was “very emotional” and that seeing Obi struck was like watching his “best friend and colleague” injured.
He said: “Obi is trained in public order, and that may be dispersing a crowd or pushing them back.
