NOBODY will be prosecuted after a woman was mauled to death by a pack of dogs.

The dog walker, 28, who has not yet been named by police, is thought to have been walking a number of canines when she was set upon.

She was later pronounced dead at the scene in Caterham Surrey.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Inspector Josephine Horner, said: "This is a tragic incident in which a young woman lost her life.

"I know it has caused real concern locally and I thank the community for bearing with us whilst we conducted our inquiries.

"The criminal investigation has now concluded and the information we have gathered will be passed to the Surrey Coroner to assist in the coronial process.

"The dogs continue to be cared for at private kennels to ensure their welfare and their owners are being kept informed.

"We appreciate this is a difficult and uncertain process for them as the forensic work continues."

The eight dogs involved in the incident continue to be held for forensic tests but police said it has been confirmed none are banned breeds.

Witnesses said the walker was struggling to control the pets in her care just days before her death.

A couple, who often visit Gravelly Hill in Caterham, said they think they crossed paths with the woman when she had lost an eight-week-old puppy.

She allegedly asked them if they had seen the pup and they described her as seeming "distressed".

And it is thought she was walking a powerful 11st Leonberger when the attack happened.
