A six-day-old baby, who died at a house in Carmarthenshire where a dog was later seized, has been named as Eliza-Mae Mullane.

Dyfed-Powys Police officers were called to a home in New Road, Pontyberem, shortly before 08:30 GMT on Tuesday.

Eliza-Mae was airlifted to the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, but was later pronounced dead, the Welsh Ambulance Service said.

An Alaskan Malamute dog, which is not a banned breed, has been taken away.
