Ammon News - West Midlands police say the animals, who did not belong to the woman, have been seized.

A woman in her 80s has died after being attacked by two escaped dogs in the West Midlands.

West Midlands police were alerted after the woman was found in a garden suffering from serious injuries at an address in Rowley Regis on Friday afternoon.

Despite the efforts of emergency services, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the dogs – who have been seized to establish their breed – did not belong to the woman, but managed to get into her garden before attacking her.

A 43-year-old local man has been detained on suspicion of being the person in charge of a dog dangerously out of control. He remains in custody for questioning.

The victim sustained dog bite injuries, although a postmortem will take place to establish the cause of death.

A police presence will remain in the area as work is carried out to establish the full circumstances of what occurred.
