The owner of a trio of dogs has handed his pets over to the police after a video circulated on social media showing a woman being attacked by three dogs in a park in Lambeth.

The incident occurred on June 6 in Abbots Park and the footage shows the woman screaming as three dogs attacked her repeatedly.

In the horrifying clip, the dogs clamped around the woman's arm, pulled her to the ground, and snapped at her face.

A man who was present at the scene tries to regain control of the dogs, which continue to attack the woman in her 20s.

Police and London Ambulance Service received the alert and arrived at the scene at 12.15pm, and the woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for significant injuries to her right arm.

Her injuries were not life-threatening.

The man in charge of the dogs had already left with the animals before the police arrived.

Police have announced that owner of the dogs has now contacted them and voluntarily handed them over to the authorities.

The dogs are now in police kennels while further investigations are conducted, and the owner is assisting with inquiries.
