A four-month-old baby boy has sadly died and his brother seriously hurt after being attacked by a dog.

Police confirmed the incident happened inside a home on Harwich Road, Colchester, at around 3.10pm on Thursday.

The baby’s brother has also been left with what police have described as “life changing injuries”.

The mother of the boys was also injured in the incident having being treated in hospital with life-changing injuries.

The dog, which is believed to be a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was taken away from the house by police and has been destroyed.

Chief Inspector Elliot Judge said: “An investigation to establish the facts surrounding what happened is ongoing.

“This is obviously a very difficult time for the family, who are being supported by specially trained officers.”

The baby was initially taken to Colchester General Hospital with what were described as “life-threatening injuries”, but later died.
