A PENSIONER who lost control of her dog in a Test Valley village has been ordered to pay more than £1,700.

Patricia Dueblack, 73, admitted to being the owner of Spanner, a five -year-old Staffordshire bull terrier cross Bull-mastiff that was dangerously out of control on Broughton High Street on March 14.

Dueblack was prosecuted under the 1992 Dangerous Dogs Act and banned from keeping a dog for five years.

Magistrates in Basingstoke fined her £80 and a £30 victim surcharge and ordered she pay £1,637 in compensation. The exact details of the incident were unavailable.
