A FATHER and daughter appeared in court yesterday to face charges relating to an incident which saw a postman savaged by two rottweilers.
Plastic bag tycoon Rob Stewart, 44, and his daughter Emma Stewart, 22, appeared at Cambridge Magistrates Court accused of being responsible for a dog which "caused injury in a private place."
The hearing comes after postman Keith Davies, 54, of Royston, was set upon by dogs belonging to the Stewarts outside the family's �1.3million mansion in Gazeley Lane, Trumpington, on December 22 last year.
The postman was saved was saved by a passing builder, Anthony Lunn, who fought the beasts off with an iron bar. However, Mr Davies suffered severe bit wounds to his arms, back, and legs, and had to go under the knife at Addenbrooke's Hospital three times to prevent his arm from being amputated. He is believed to still be off work recuperating from the attack.
