Police and paramedics are at the scene of what's believed to be a fatal dog attack in Rowley Regis, Birmingham.

A large number of 999 vehicles were scrambled to Boundary Avenue on Friday afternoon and locals were urged to avoid the area as the incident unfolded.

Birmingham Live is reporting that a woman has died following an incident involving a dog, although police have yet to confirm this or provide any details.

West Midlands Police has been contacted for comment.

Forensics officers were also at the scene although all ambulance crews have now reportedly left.

Photos show Boundary Avenue crammed with police vehicles, with what appears to be one property taped off to the public.

Another photo shows an air ambulance landing in a grassy area of Britannia Park, with crowds of people standing and watching, some of whom seem to have dogs with them.

It's unknown whereabouts the alleged attack took place.
