The 'bulldog-type' dog has been seized and remains in kennels in Cornwall.

Mike West, Detective Superintendent from Devon and Cornwall Police's major crime investigation team, said the force is still investigating if the dog is registered as a dangerous breed.

Breeds banned under the Dangerous Dogs Act include the pit bull terrier, Japanese tosa, dogo argentino and the fila brasileiro.

'Whether or not the dog will be put down is not a decision for the police at this time,' Det Supt West said.

'We've got specialists that are looking at the breed of the dog, and that's part of our inquiries.

We need to understand exactly what the breed of the dog is.' He added in a statement: 'Frankie had been staying at the holiday park in the company of adults for a number of evenings prior to his tragic death.

'We believe that Frankie was alone in a caravan with the dog as he was attacked, whilst the adults that he was on holiday with were in an adjacent unit – these two groups of people were known to each other and from the Plymouth area.

'This is a desperately sad event which has seen a nine-year-old boy lose his life whilst on holiday; our thoughts and sympathies are with the loved ones of Frankie and those who knew him.

'I also wish to recognise those who came to his aid at the scene – members of the public and emergency services staff who had to work in deeply upsetting conditions.

'We appreciate that this case will shock and upset the public. However, we urge the public not to apportion blame on this tragic incident, and to allow us to do our job and to fully investigate this matter.'

Management at the holiday park offered their 'deepest sympathies' to Frankie's family.
