Horrified neighbours have paid tribute to a four-year-old girl who was mauled to death by a dog at her home in Milton Keynes.


Little Alice Stones was savaged by the animal in her back garden in Broadlands, Netherfield, last night.


Armed police cornered the dog and destroyed it. Thames Valley Police has said no arrests have been made as they investigate the attack.


Locals left flowers outside the house this morning, while others described Alice's mother's 'desperate screams' as her child was killed by the animal, which neighbours claimed the family bought about six weeks ago.


One said: 'I heard, "She's dead! She's dead!". They'll stay with me forever. It was a nightmare. I'm heartbroken. They will haunt me.'


Police say no one else was hurt and the girl's family is being supported by specially trained officers. Officers remain on scene today as their investigation into the incident continues.
