Dog attack victim named by police

A woman who was killed in a dog attack has been named by police.

Ann Dunn, 65, died at the scene of the incident, which happened at a home in Kirkdale, Liverpool, on Monday.

Five American bulldogs were handed over and humanely destroyed following the incident, Merseyside Police said.

A force spokesman said a 31-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of owning a dog dangerously out of control has since been released on conditional bail.

Police were called to the house in St Brigid’s Crescent by the North West Ambulance Service at 4.25pm.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out to establish the cause of death.

The investigation is continuing, the force spokesman said.
