A woman who was mauled by two Rottweilers and sustained wounds to her arms and legs has died weeks later. 

Marie Stevens, 40, was taken to hospital where she was treated and later discharged.

But police were called on September 3 by the North West Ambulance Service to Ms Stevens’ home on Holden Road, in Brighton-le-Sands to a report she had collapsed and died at home. 

A 41-year-old man and a 68-year-old woman from Netherton have been arrested on suspicion of being in charge of a dog dangerously out of control causing injury.

Both suspects were later bailed with conditions.

A post mortem determined the primary cause of death was a pulmonary embolism.

Ms Stevens’s family have been informed. 

The tragic news comes just days after a three-year-old girl was left in hospital with serious injuries after her face was mauled in a vicious dog attack while she was playing outside a pub.

Witnesses described seeing the young girl outside the Market Tavern in Kirkby, northeast of Liverpool, earlier in the day dressed in ‘pretty pink’, while they claimed the ‘big dog’ kept having to be pulled back by its owners.

Merseyside Police were called to the pub in Newtown Gardens just after 3.15pm on Saturday afternoon following a report that a dog had attacked a child.
