The two men who have since been released were a 34-year-old from the Mountain Ash area and a 19-year-old from the Caerphilly area.

Jack and his friend had been alone at the time of the incident.

After the dog attacked Jack, his friend sought the help of a neighbour but they were unable to stop the animal.

Paramedics arrived at the scene just before 4pm but were unable to save Jack.

The animal was shot by officers at the scene.
