A woman has been seriously injured in a horrific attack by her four dogs at her home, according to police.

Armed police were called to the property on Assam Close in St Helens this morning with a large number of emergency response vehicles also in attendance, including ambulance and fire crews.

Initially reports suggested the dogs were a breed of bulldog, according to Merseyside Police.

The extent of the woman's injuries is currently unknown but police describe them as "serious".

Neighbours on the street said emergency services were on the scene for over an hour as they watched the police load a small dog into an unmarked van.

Speaking to the Liverpool ECHO, one resident said: "You should have seen it before, the whole street was filled with police, ambulance and everything, it was mad.”

Another resident on the same estate said there has been trouble previously and that residents 'have to suffer' through it.

While another said it's a "nice estate" and it is a surprise "when something like this goes on."
