A DANGEROUS dog has been seized by police in Lynton.
The dog, believed to be a pitbull type dog, was seized on Wednesday evening.
The bitch is not related to dogs bred by Steven and Tracey Tewkesbury, who were found guilty of breeding the dangerous dogs at their Barnstaple home earlier this year.
The dog has been kennelled and will now be examined by a police dog handler.
If it is found to be a pitbull type dog the owner, who has co-operated with police, will have to go to court in order to get their dog back.
