The incident comes following Holyrood’s introduction of XL bully safeguards in Scotland.

The first phase, mirroring legislation brought in by Westminster, came into force on 23 February.

The breed must be kept on a lead and muzzled when out in public. Selling, breeding, abandoning or giving the dogs away is also now illegal.

The second phase, coming into force in August, will make it a criminal offence to own an unlicensed XL bully dog without an exemption certificate.

Christian B: Madeleine McCann suspect beat rape victim and attacked woman while wearing ski mask, court hears | World News

The prime suspect in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann raped a woman while wearing a ski mask and beat another rape victim with a whip, a court has heard.

Christian B – whose surname cannot be published due to the country’s privacy laws – faces three counts of rape and two of sexual abuse at his trial in the northern city of Braunschweig.

The 47-year-old German is alleged to have committed the offences in Portugal between 2000 and 2017. The allegations do not relate to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in 2007.

He is accused of raping and beating a 70 to 80-year-old woman, after entering her bedroom wearing a ski mask. He also allegedly held a cushion over the woman’s face before leaving.

Under another charge, it’s said Christian B allegedly woke up a 20-year-old from Ireland as she slept, before raping her at her flat in Portugal in June 2004. In the same alleged attack, he is accused of gagging the woman and beating her.

Other charges facing Christian B include:

  • Beating and sexually assaulting a girl aged at least 14 sometime between December 2000 and April 2006 at his house in Praia da Luz, Portugal
  • Exposing himself to a 10-year-old German girl at a beach in Salema in the district of Faro in Portugal on 7 April 2007
  • Exposing himself to an 11-year-old Portuguese girl at a playground in Bartolomeu de Messines in Portugal on 11 June 2017

During the hearing, Christian B’s lawyer said the defendant “is using his right to remain silent”.

His defence lawyer said he expects his client to be acquitted, dismissing the evidence as “abysmal”.

There are no formal pleas in the German legal system, and defendants are not obliged to respond to the charges.

Christian B is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence for the 2005 rape of a 72-year-old in Praia da Luz, the same town where Madeleine disappeared.

He has not been charged in the McCann case and denies involvement, but has been under investigation for the last few years.

Madeleine was three when she went missing on holiday in Portugal in May 2007.

16 February: Christian B arrives in court

In May last year, German and Portuguese police searched a nearby reservoir that Christian B used to call his “paradise”.

His trial opened a week ago but was swiftly adjourned on its first day after Mr Fulscher filed a challenge against a lay judge on the panel hearing the case, who was alleged once to have spread a call to kill former Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro on social media.

Prosecutors supported the challenge.

The woman has been removed from the case and now faces an investigation herself on suspicion of making a public call to commit crimes.

The victim, in his 40s, was taken to hospital following the incident outside St Stephen’s Church in Sneinton, Nottinghamshire, at around 10.50am on Sunday.

Police say a 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

“We understand an incident like this can cause concern to the community, but I want to personally reassure them that we do have a suspect in custody and have a group of detectives and officers working hard to understand exactly what has happened.”

He urged anyone with information to come forward.

In a Facebook post, a church spokesperson described the incident as a “terribly challenging situation”, adding: “Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected.”

A Church of England spokesperson added: “It has been a shock for the community. He was stabbed outside the church by someone who had been at the service.

Woman mauled to death in Surrey was ‘attacked by multiple dogs’ and screamed ‘turn back’ to passers-by, witness says | UK News

A woman mauled to death at a Surrey beauty spot was attacked by “multiple dogs” and screamed at passers-by to “turn back”, a witness has said.

Paramedics were unable to save the 28-year-old victim after she was attacked at Gravelly Hill, Caterham, on Thursday.

A second woman who received treatment for dog bites has since left hospital.

An eyewitness told Sky News she was riding on horseback with her friend when they saw the woman who was killed on the floor “being attacked by multiple dogs”.

Sue Dove said: “She screamed at us to turn back and with that, two of the loose dogs ran towards us and the horses… my horse spun round and bolted and I eventually fell.”

The witness said she had been left feeling “lots of different emotions”.

She added: “(I feel) sadness that a woman has lost her life, but frustrated people are able to walk so many dogs.

“This lady was clearly out of control for whatever reason, had fallen to the ground, being attacked.

“Because of those consequences and two of the dogs running towards us, my horse bolted and I fell from my horse, landing on my right side, on my ribs and hip.

“Fortunately, my horse eventually stopped and my friend was able to get to him. Otherwise, as flight animals, this could have been another horrific accident if he kept going.”

Area popular with dog walkers

Surrey Police detained a total of eight dogs and detectives are keeping their owners up to date with the investigation.

No arrests have been made.

Richard Bream, who runs the nearby Mardens Kennels, said he had never heard of a dog attack in the area before.

He said: “That particular area, View Point, is an area where professional dog walkers will turn up in their van and take the dogs out and walk them.

“I’ve always felt you see some of these dog walkers have five or six, and they shouldn’t be able to do that.”

A man at an address near the scene, who asked not to be named, said: “The dogs dispersed into different areas of the woods and the police helicopter was out looking for them.”

‘Tragic incident’

A woman walking a border collie in the area, who asked not to be named, said she was shocked by the incident.

“It’s a nice circular woodland walk and we’ve never had any issues before. It is so shocking, normal dogs surely wouldn’t do that,” she said.

A post-mortem examination will be conducted by the Surrey coroner.

“Officers will remain in the area of Gravelly Hill today whilst enquiries continue and if you have any information but have not yet spoken to police then please contact us.”

He has also been charged with robbery and possession of a bladed article and will appear at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Earlier on Saturday, the Met said the female officer who suffered a stab wound to the arm had been discharged from hospital, while the male officer remained under medical supervision.

The officers who were taken to hospital – were both attached to the Met’s Central West Command Unit responsible for policing Westminster – and were carrying out routine duties.

They were not part of the wider policing operation in place following the death of the Queen.

After the incident, London mayor Sadiq Khan told Sky News it was a “reminder of the risk all our officers across the country take every day when they put on their uniform”.
