A baby boy has died and another child has been seriously injured after they were attacked by a dog.

Emergency services were called to an address in Harwich Road, Colchester, at 3.10pm on Thursday.

A four month old boy and a twenty two month old boy were taken to hospital - the four month old died overnight and the older boy has been left with 'life-changing injuries'.

A woman was also taken to hospital with minor injuries after being bitten by the dog.
