Tragically a boy aged 10 has died after being attacked by a dog at a caravan park in Cornwall.

Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed that they had responded to an incident at a Caravan within the Tencreek Holiday Park in Looe just before 5am on Saturday.

Officers and Medics responded to reports that a 10-year-old boy was found in an unresponsive state after being attacked by a dog.

Emergency services attended but the child was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The boy’s next of kin are aware and are being supported by police officers.

Following this incident, searches were undertaken to locate the dog, believed to be a bulldog-type breed, and its owner.

The Mayor of Looe, Armand Toms, paid tribute to the youngster and expressed sorrow at the incident.

Police arrested a 28-year-old woman in Saltash just after 8am this morning in connection to the matter.

The dog was also located which has since been transferred to kennels.

Enquiries continue into this incident.
