A man seen in video footage repeatedly punching a dog is being sought by the RSPCA.

Insp Charlotte Brooker said the animal - thought to be an American bulldog - was "clearly petrified".

The incident took place in Hendon Road in Nelson, Lancashire, at about 15:15 GMT on 10 December.

A member of the public filmed the attack and gave the footage to the RSPCA, which said it was "extremely concerned" for the dog's welfare.
