    A dog has been killed in Kent by being hit on the head in what the RSPCA has described as a "brutal beating".

    Officers said the Jack Russell was struck with a sharp object such as a stiletto or a screwdriver which injured the dog's head.

    The animal was found alive but covered in blood on Saturday at 08:00 BST at the junction of Bunkers Hill Road and Hillside Road in Dover.

    He was taken to a vet but had to be put down because of his injuries.

    Not microchipped

    RSPCA Inspector Julia Fuller said: "We do not know what the weapon was, as it was not found but it caused a clean hole in the head so it may have been something like a stiletto shoe, a screwdriver or a piece of wood with a nail in the end.

    "This was a brutal beating and we are appealing for any information which might lead us to the person who did this or the dog's owner."

    The dog had a white coat with patches of tan fur on its rump and tops of its ears.

    He was not microchipped.
