Juliet Aubrey - Police Apologise To Juliet Aubrey Over Dog Attack

British actress Juliet Aubrey has received an apology from U.K. cops after she was attacked by a police dog following a terrifying burglary at her home.

The Constant Gardener star cowered under her daughter's bed during the ordeal in March, 2012 when thieves raided her London home while she was alone in the house.

When emergency services eventually arrived to help, Aubrey was bitten on the leg and arm by a police dog.

She said of the attack, "My relief was so total (when the police arrived)... I was sobbing, crying, relieved, and then laughing. I thought that everything was going to be Ok... (Then) he (the dog) just came for me. He sank his teeth into my leg through my skin, muscles and down to the bone. His jaw was locked right down to the bone... The dog was vicious and out of control and should not have been off its leash. Thank God my children were not there."

She was later diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, and left with visible scars from the attack.

Following an 18-month internal investigation, chiefs at the Metropolitan Police ruled the force had "let her down" and added in a statement, "The investigation report also highlights a number of recommendations and learning points that have come about from this incident."
