A woman who was mauled to death in a dog attack has been named by police.

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

Five American bulldogs which were found inside the property have now been humanely destroyed.

Merseyside Police said a 31-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of owning a dog dangerously out of control had 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, a force spokesman said.
