St Peter’s Primary Academy was placed on lockdown, with children prevented from leaving “for safety reasons”.

Members of the public desperately tried to intervene and get the dogs away from the man and were able to contain one of the animals.

The second was contained within the owner’s flat, police say.

A 30-year-old man from the Lichfield area has been arrested on suspicion of having dogs dangerously out of control.

Police have opened a probe into the incident and are attempting to determine the dog’s breed.

A spokesperson for Staffordshire Police said: “We are investigating after a man received serious injuries after been bitten by two dogs in Stonnall.

“We were called just before 3.15pm this afternoon to Main Street to reports that a man had been attacked by two dogs outside a property. The man has been taken to hospital.

“A number of people helped to try and get the dogs off the man and contained one of the dogs outside. The other was contained within the owner’s flat.

“We prevented a number of school children leaving local primary school, St Peter’s Primary Academy, for safety reasons. The children have since been allowed to go home.”
