British tourist dies after being attacked by stray dogs in Greece”

British Tourist killed and "partially eaten" by stray dogs in Greece made a frantic final call to her family as she lay dying.

Ms Hollingworth was staying in the small town of Maroneia, and had hiked to a nearby archaeological site, Mesimvria.

Authorities found the body of the woman, 62, with markings indicating she had been savaged by hounds in the northern region of Rodopi on Saturday.

The force said it was also working with the Foreign Office and supporting Ms Hollingworth's family.

The former Bristol University lecturer was last seen walking back to her accommodation after visiting an archaeological site.

Wiltshire Police said it was in contact with Greek police regarding formal identification of the body. Her body was found shredded to pieces, some of it devoured.

Her phone lost signal shortly after and her family called police to raise alarm about the attack.

"We are in contact with Greek Police in relation to a British woman missing in northern Greece since Thursday", a UK Foreign Office spokesperson confirmed to Daily Mail's MailOnline.

Andrew Otto, who lives opposite her, said: "Of all the people here she was the one who was going out of her way to make friends".

Media reports suggested that there are almost one million stray dogs across Greece, a popular tourist destination in Europe.

She spent time campaigning for the Bath Against Cuts group, which described her as "always optimistic".
