Savaged postman loses his job

A postman has lost his job after being savaged by a dog. Terry Johnson, 53, suffered 41 bite marks. He has been unable to work since the alsatian attack eight months ago.
Mr Johnson, who now walks with a stick, was expecting Royal Mail to offer him a less demanding post. But when he met managers, he said, he was given a cheque for £7,000 and told he was being retired on health grounds from his £15,000-a- year delivery round at East Herringthorpe, Rotherham, South Yorks.
Mr Johnson said: "It's hard to believe after what I've been through. They haven't kept in touch, asked how I've been or anything."
The Royal Mail said: "On occasion, we are advised on medical grounds that there is not a suitable position for an employee and this can result in the person retiring on the grounds of ill health."
