A 10-year-boy has died after being attacked by a dog at a caravan park in Looe, Cornwall.

Police said the boy was found unresponsive after they were called to a caravan at Tencreek Holiday Park just before 5am.

Emergency services tried to save the boy, who has not yet been named, but he died at the scene.

A 28-year-old woman was later arrested in Saltash, 17 miles away, on suspicion of manslaughter and having a dog dangerously out of control.

A bulldog-type breed is believed to have been involved and has been taken to kennels.

The park was was “effectively in lock down” after the incident and a caravan was cordoned off, according to a witness quoted by the Daily Mirror.

The boy’s next of kin have been informed.

Tencreek Holiday Park, located on the Cornish coast, hires out static caravans to holidaymakers and also has pitches for tents and motorhomes.
