A gran mauled to death by a pack of five dogs which also destroyed her home has been pictured following her death yesterday (Monday, October 3).

Ann Dunn, 65, had been pronounced dead at the scene of the attack at her home in Liverpool, where she was killed by the gang of XL Bullys.

Neighbours had reported hearing a woman screaming at around 4pm, with Merseyside Police later confirming that five American bulldogs were seized from inside the property and humanely destroyed after mauling Dunn to death.

Tributes for the late grandmother have poured in, with one neighbour describing Ms Dunn as a "lovely" person and a "happy girl".

An ongoing investigation into her death has led to the arrest of one 31-year-old man on suspicion of owning a dog dangerously out of control.

A post-mortem will establish the cause of Ms Dunn's death, which Detective Inspector Katie Coote labelled a "very distressing incident".

Tributes to Dunn have since poured in, with one neighbour saying she was "lovely, really funny, such a happy girl."

The neighbour added of Dunn's death: "When I found out I was so upset. I couldn’t sleep that night, I was laid awake thinking about what state she must have been in when they found her. It’s awful."

Another neighbour recalled Ms Dunn as a "lovely woman" and said: "She always used to stop and chat and she was always smiling. She was a lovely woman."

They also described the scene of the tragic attack, adding: "The first thing I saw was a load of people gathered at the end of the crescent talking to each other on the phone.

"When I found out it was Ann who had been attacked by a dog I was in shock. I couldn't believe it.

"I've lived here for 38 years and there's been a huge increase in the number of fatal dog attacks that you hear about or read about in the paper."
