A DOG walk turned nasty when two German Shepherds on leashes lurched and growled at another man's dog.

The owner of the snarling pets became aggressive after the other dog owner challenged him over their hostile behaviour.

The incident happened while the two dogwalkers passed each other in the park off Bloomsbury Close in Freshbrook on the afternoon of Sunday February 2.

Swindon Police have released a picture of a man they would like to speak to in relation to the incident.

Anyone who recognises him should call 101.
