'Justice' plea for girl killed in dog attack

Nick Britten

RELATIONS of Jade Anderson, the 14-year-old savaged to death by a friend's dogs, have voiced their anger that the owner of the animals is unlikely to be prosecuted.

While Jade's immediate family have declined to speak publicly, her uncle, Tucker Lomas, said he was "disgusted" at the prospect that the dog's owner, Beverley Concannon, could avoid prosecution because the attack happened on private property.

He wrote on Facebook: "This news is making me sick. Can everyone spread the word we want justice over these dogs and the owners so this cannot happen again."

Yesterday, the house in Manchester where Jade died on Tuesday was boarded up. Specialist cleaners attended before metal grilles were placed in front of the windows and doors.

Police denied the grilles were a response to threats of reprisal attacks. Officers were continuing to investigate why the dogs attacked Jade. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
