Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A Heav­ily-preg­nant woman has told how her dog tried to free her af­ter she was tied to her chair by bur­glars.

Two ma­chete-wield­ing raiders left Vic­to­ria Ratheram in the nurs­ery of her cot­tage in Woller­ton, Shrop­shire, and the dog tried to chew through her ties be­fore a neigh­bour re­leased her.

Vic­to­ria, 28 – who is eight months preg­nant – said: “They threat­ened me, my three-year-old son and my dogs. They asked for a safe and I was tied up in the hall as they ran­sacked the house.

“I was moved into the nurs­ery when they didn’t find a safe and tied to a chair with my dog in the room and my son.

“I was there for quite a while and my dog tried to chew through my ties and luck­ily I was freed by a neigh­bour.”
