Mancunian Matters report:

At least two Greater Manchester posties are attacked and injured by dogs every week, figures reveal.

Data released under the Freedom of Information Act show there have been 387 dog attacks on postmen and women over the last three years – but this figure could be even higher as many incidents go unreported.

Postmen and women in the area have suffered bites to their fingers, legs, faces, buttocks and even genitalia.
