A woman has admitted attempting to drown a dog which was found in a freezing river with a heavy rock tied to its lead.

Belgian Shepherd Bella was found up to her neck in water in the River Trent after having a carrier bag containing a rock tethered to her leash.

She was saved by a heroic passerby, Jane Harper, who bravely leapt into the water in Farndon, Nottinghamshire, at 8:45am on January 6 this year.
