Tribute to Liverpool Dog Victim

79 year old Clifford Clarke,was in the garden of his home in Clubmoor, Liverpool, when it's reported he was mauled by an ``out of control'' dog on Saturday evening.

The brother of Mr Clarke's paid tribute to him and also backed calls for new laws to control dogs after a spate of attacks in recent months. Kenny Clarke, 70, said: ``Cliff was a very easy-going man."He did his own thing and made a point about helping others."

``He loved his local pub - the Farmer's Arms - and had many old friends of his there who will miss him dearly.``He did not deserve this, so please put your support behind new laws for dog owners because you would not like any of your loved ones to have this happen to them.``Our family are heartbroken.''

Two local women, aged 28 and 27, were questioned on suspicion of manslaughter and an offence under the Dangerous Dogs Act - having an out of control dog.They are now on bail pending further police inquiries. The breed of the dog, shot dead by police marksmen, is not yet known, tests are being carried out.
