A POSTMAN had his arm torn apart by two rottweilers while making his Christmas deliveries.
Keith Davies, 54, of Royston was attacked as he delivered post to a £1.3m property on Gazeley Lane, Trumpington at around 11am on Monday and has undergone two operations at Addenbrooke's Hospital as a result of the attack.
The victim, who works at the Royal Mail's delivery office in Henley Road, Cambridge, suffered severe bite wounds on his arms, back and legs but was saved by Anthony Lunn, 44, who attempted to fight the dogs off with an iron bar before running one of them over.
The dog owners were not thought to be in the property at the time but Cambridgeshire Police said the dogs were destroyed after the attack.
