A two-year-old boy has died in hospital after being attacked by three dogs on Monday at a property in Worcestershire. The toddler was left fighting for his life after being bitten by the out-of-control animals in Egdon.

His family tried to take him to hospital themselves, but they stopped en route on advice of emergency services.

The boy was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital by ambulance, and was transferred to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where he later died.

Police have since taken the dogs away and secured them and say they are not believed they are breed banned under UK law.

West Mercia Police Superintendent Rebecca Love said her officers responded to a report of a 2-year-old boy suffering a cardiac arrest at around 11.20am on Monday.

They quickly established that the child had suffered injuries after being bitten at the address.
