The family of a man from Liverpool killed in a dog attack have said they are "heartbroken".
Clifford Clarke was killed by the animal in his back garden in the Upmoor area of the city.
In a statement Clifford's brother Kenny 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."
