...while taking her husband Justin home, she claims officers told the 40-year-old electrician there was no case to answer - before officially interviewing anyone involved.
"He said first of all once a dog got into my car that was my responsibility," she said. "I told him 'I don't think so'.
"Then after he said he would look into it he said to me 'we don't know what happened in that car, you daughter could have been teasing it, there's no case'. "I said 'excuse me, have you asked my daughter? No. She's still in bits'. I was devastated.
"It was absolutely awful and the fact I had to lodge an official complaint to get it investigated is disgusting."Indeed it is.
Suffolk Police said: "When this incident was first reported to police, the initial assessment of the officer who attended was that no criminal offences had taken place.
"A subsequent review of the circumstances found that the case warranted further police investigation, and as a result the owner of the dog was reported for a summons to court.
"We hope that the victims are happy with the outcome of the court hearing and regret any distress caused over the initial handling of this case, which is currently being reviewed."Time for a P45 or two?
