A dog seized by police officers under the Dangerous Dogs Act was not a banned breed.

Officers raided a property in Stradbroke Crescent, Stradbroke, yesterday following community concerns that there was a banned breed there.

South Yorkshire Police has now revealed that the dog was not a banned breed, but was seized over welfare concerns.

Officers also seized six ounces of cannabis at the house.

A force spokesman said: "Officers conducted a warrant on Stradbroke Crescent yesterday under the Dangerous Dogs Act. This was after reports and concerns from the community that a banned breed dog was at the address.

"No banned breed dogs were located, however a dog was seized due to welfare concerns.

"Whilst at the address approximately six ounces of cannabis were recovered and a male reported for offences."
