    Ava-Jayne Corless was asleep in bed at a house in Blackburn on Monday night when she was savaged by the pit bull terrier. The girl's mother, Chloe King, 20, and her partner, Lee Wright, 26, have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter. Police said the dog, which was destroyed after the attack, had been identified by experts as a pit bull terrier-type dog which people are prohibited from owning under Section 1 of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991.
