A West Cumbrian woman who admitted owning a dog dangerously out of control has had her sentencing delayed.

Jayne Buckley, 36, of South View, Seascale appeared before North and West Cumbria Magistrates Court in Workington on Friday, where she was due to be sentenced for a string of offences.

However the case has now been delayed until next Friday to allow for a report to be prepared.

During a previous hearing, Buckley pleaded guilty to owning an Akita cross American Bulldog named Lexi which was dangerously out on control on Seascale seafront on May 22.

She also admitted two counts of owning a dog which worried livestock, first on agricultural land behind Seascale Fire Station on May 30 and again on June 1 on agricultural land at Seascale seafront.

The case is adjourned until October 11 while evidence is gathered on her fitness to own animals and whether the dog should be destroyed.

Buckley has been remanded on unconditional bail.
