Garstang and Over Wyre police are looking to speak with a man in connection with the incident. He was walking a large, dark-coloured dog, similar in size to a setter or a retriever, that did not appear to be on a lead at the time.

A spokesman said: "We need your help to identify this male. I'm sorry for the quality of the image, but it is all we have."
