A man in his 60s is dead and his wife seriously injured … after a horrific dog attack in Mill Park.

Emergency services were called to a home on Ancona Drive just after 6:30 last night after neighbours heard screams.

Police were forced to shoot at the American Staffordshire Terrier to stop it attacking others.

It’s believed the dog belongs to the son of the victim and will be put down.
