A 10-year-old boy died when he was attacked by a "bulldog-type" dog at a holiday park, police said.

Police were called to a caravan at Tencreek Holiday Park in Looe, Cornwall, just before 05:00 BST to reports the boy was "unresponsive".

He died at the scene and a search was launched to find the dog and owner.

A 28-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter at 08:00 in Saltash.

Devon and Cornwall Police said she was also arrested on suspicion of having a dog dangerously out of control.

How sad. My condolences to the family and friends of this poor boy. This dog needs to be put down and the owner should be held responsible somehow.

This has been on my mind for days, I don't know why but it's really upset me, I think maybe it's because the little boy looked a lot like my son at the same age.

I hope his family can find some comfort somewhere.

Idiots should not own dogs.  Unfortunately idiots tend not to be cat people.
