Bitten by adder

ADDER warnings have been issued by Adur District Council following an incident on Southwick Hill.

A dog was bitten by an adder on Thursday.

The council said: “The summer is showing signs of ending and there is a little less sunshine now, but please don’t forget that the adders are still out there.

“We were told about a dog that was bitten. He’s slowly recovering but is still very swollen and unwell. Please watch where your step as best as you can.”
