Merseyside Police have confirmed that the 79-year-old man who died following a dog attack in Richard Kelly Close, Clubmoor, last night is Clifford Clarke.
Officers were called to an address on Richard Kelly Close just before 8.40pm on Saturday, to reports of a dog attack on an elderly man in the garden of his home.
When they arrived officers found the body of the man and they were confronted by a dog that was out of control.
Armed officers attended at the scene and the dog was destroyed.
At this stage the breed of the dog is still to be established.
