Shane Evans, 25, and Joanne Washtington, 44, of Oak Avenue, Golborne, have pleaded not guilty to failing to prevent the dog from attacking John Anders on May 29 last year in Nook Lane.

Wigan justices sent the case to be heard at Bolton Crown court where the pair have now been told that their trial will take place on September 6.

They are on bail until then.
