Woman mauled by police dog at Bristol illegal rave

A WOMAN at an illegal rave was left with “life-changing” injuries after she was mauled by a police dog when she had “one last dance”.

Jessica Mae Andrew, 28, claims the dog was “out of control” when it bit her without warning during the event with 700 revellers in Yate, near Bristol.

The footage here shows the moments of the incident. Andrew is seen on the ground, surrounded by police, as a dog bites at her leg, and as a line of officers in riot gear faces toward the remaining revellers.

The dog repeatedly bit her leg and she was rushed to hospital with severe wounds and a fractured bone.

She needed urgent skin and muscle grafts which will be followed by more reconstructive surgery next year.

Jessica, who was attending the illegal rave with around 700 other people, is taking legal action against the police.

Avon and Somerset Police are investigating the claim she was left with “life-changing” injuries and has referred itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

Officers arrested 12 people at the event which saw over 700 people flouting Coronavirus social distancing rules on the 31st of October 2020. Two organizers had been given £10,000 fixed penalty notices.
