Newsreader Sian 'sore and bruised' after dog attack

By Sherna Noah

News presenter Sian Williams has told how she was left "sore, swollen and bruised" after she was attacked by a friend's neighbour's dog.

The former BBC Breakfast star (51), posted images of her wounded knee on her Twitter page, saying the pet "would not stop" and the attack "lasted ages".

The Channel 5 newsreader was prescribed antibiotics and had a tetanus injection.

"Grrr. Prescribed antibiotics after a dog had a go at my knee," Williams wrote. "No lead, wouldn't stop, lasted ages, very sore. Advice?" the mother-of-four asked her followers.

Some fans asked if she knew who owned the dog and urged her to report it to the police.

"Thanks. All cleaned up. Yes had tetanus. Will follow course and get friend to talk to her neighbour (the dog owner!)", she later wrote.

Williams presented BBC's Breakfast programme for 11 years but quit when the show's move to Manchester was announced.
