dog attack
A woman has been found dead after being attacked by a dog at her home, police say.

West Midlands Police officers were called to Sunbeam Way, Shard End in Birmingham, shortly after 14:00 GMT on Friday by a relative.

A 25-year-old woman was found dead at the scene after suffering serious injuries believed to have been caused by a family dog.

The dog, believed to be a Staffordshire cross, has been signed over to police.

It will be humanely put to sleep, the force said.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: "The death is being treated as a tragic incident, but with no suspicious circumstances."

A file will be prepared for the coroner in due course, they added.
