A grandmother is believed to have died after being mauled by a pack of dogs.

The 71-year-old woman, named in reports as Gloria Knowles, was found dead with multiple injuries at a house in Morden, south London, on Tuesday.

Police were called to the property following the incidents and seized five dogs including two Bordeaux bulldogs, two American bulldogs and a mongrel.

The great grandmother had gone to the garden of the property in Rutland Drive and was feeding the pet dogs belonging to her daughter when she was mauled, according to reports.

She also suffered a heart attack and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Neighbours told reporters they had heard screams and barking coming from the rear of the house before emergency workers arrived.

Mrs Knowles reportedly lived next door to her daughter and was feeding the animals as a favour.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out on her body at St George's Hospital in Tooting, south London, to establish how she died.

Scotland Yard said none of the seized animal are banned breeds and that no arrests have been made in connection with the tragedy.

A force spokesman said: "Police were called at around 6.25pm on Tuesday to reports of a 71-year-old woman found deceased at a residential address in Morden

Bet if it's found it wasn't the dogs, a correction won't be printed but if it shows it was the dogs it'll be splashed over everywhere like it is now :rolleyes:

I heard this on the news today whilst at was at my friends. So very sad,for the family and the dogs. I hope they don't destroy the dogs.
I did wonder if the dogs didn't like someone coming into the garden.Whether to feed them or not.:(
