4 Month Old Dies In Dog Attack

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.

It's not yet known what breed the dog was.

It has since been put down.

Will Quince, MP for Colchester, spoke of his sorrow at the incident, tweeting: "So sad to hear of the death of a baby in a dog attack in Colchester. My thoughts and prayers are with his brother now at Colchester Hospital."
