Police in Leeds have arrested a thirty three year old man on suspicion of offences under the dangerous dogs act, after an attack that killed a young mother. Emma Bennett died from her injuries last night after being attacked by two dogs in her home on Monday afternoon.
It is thought the dogs involved were American Pit Bulls, a breed subject to restrictions under the act. Frazer Maude reports.
