The RSPCA is appealing for information after footage was passed to them of a man with a dog on an Accrington street.

A dashboard camera captured footage on the Fairfield Street/Exchange Street junction on Easter Monday, March 28 at around 5pm.

RSPCA inspector Charlotte Booker said: “We want to find this dog to check on his welfare.

“The footage we have been passed shows the dog being walked down a street by the man. He pauses and is seen kicking the dog repeatedly against a wall, before continuing to walk with the dog down the street.

“The witnesses say that the dog was kicked with considerable force, and crushed into the ground with the man’s foot.

“Naturally we are extremely concerned about this dog and want to hear from anyone who can help us to find him. If you have any information please call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018 as soon as possible.”

Witnesses describe the dog as a brown and white bull breed and the man as Asian, over 30 years old and tall with facial hair. He was wearing a dark-coloured long three-quarter length coat.
