East London residents have been left terrified after three dogs attacked a woman in a green space between flats.

A witness has recorded the moment one of the large dogs jumps at her, bouncing up to shoulder height before she flees.

A person in a hoody appears to try and restrain the animals, but two chase the woman to a fence.

She falls to the ground and screams out as the dogs surround her and continue to jump at her.

At one point, a dog appears to bite down towards her lower back and she yells out.

The person in the hoody holds back two but a third then grabs her arm as she tries to throw it off. The person then tries to grab the third dog but the woman is again leapt at.

LBC has been told that the attack happened earlier on Wednesday morning.

LBC was told residents believe the woman could have been a jogger in the park and “the owner must be a local for him to walk his three dogs in this park but locals are very scared and concerned”.

The Met was contacted by LBC and said it was aware of the video but did not believe it had been reported to police apart from the tweet being flagged.
