Elderly woman dies as two dogs attack her in garden


A woman in her 80s has died after being attacked by two dogs in her garden, West Midlands Police have said.

The woman, who has not been named, suffered serious bite injuries during the incident earlier today in the Rowley Regis area, south of Dudley.

The dogs did not belong to her, officers have said, and a 43-year-old man is being questioned on suspicion of being the person in charge of a dog dangerously out of control.

Both animals have been seized by police to establish their breed.

A post-mortem examination will take place and police have said they will remain at the scene while they establish the full circumstances.

Police were called to the address in Boundary Avenue at about 3.20pm.

In a statement, West Midlands Police said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the woman at this deeply distressing time.”
