A postman has been awarded 4,750 pounds sterling in compensation for having been bitten by a springer spaniel, Toby. He will receive additional payments for his legal costs and loss of earnings. The incident occurred in Oct 1998, when the dog bit the postman, who was delivering mail, in the groin. The postman is worried about the effect of the bite on his ability to have children, though he has been told that this should be unaffected.
