MyWelshpool weather girl Sian Lloyd has revealed her harrowing experience at the hands of a stalker.

Our weather forecaster said the terrifying incident in her own home near Newtown has 'completely changed my life'

The weather presenter said she was no longer comfortable alone in her own home following a terrifying incident last year.

Speaking with S4C’s current affairs programme Y Byd ar Bedwar, the TV star said: “Sadly I think it’s completely changed my life.

“I’ve gone from someone hyper-confident, carefree, going from one thing to another, never looking over my shoulder. Now I look over my shoulder mentally and physically.”

Sian, 58, spoke of how she had been targeted by stalkers on several occasions during her lengthy career in showbusiness.

But she said in the show, to be aired this week, she had been left traumatised by one incident in particular last year.

The stalker was present at a rally event where Sian had been presenting awards.

After returning to her Mid Wales home she was appalled by what she found.

“Having driven up from London with my husband there were loads of letters and right on top was a handwritten letter,” she said.

“I opened it and a picture fell out of the most revolting close up of what we shall say was a man in a state of excitement, a man’s private parts, and it could not have been a bigger close-up.

“And there was an accompanying letter that said ‘This is for you and there’s plenty more where that came from’ and he even gave his phone number.”

Despite leaving the phone number police were unable to trace the culprit.

She added: “I resent his intrusion enormously. You could say he’s done me a favour as I’m incredibly alert because of what could go wrong, and it might sound as if I’m a scaredy-cat or paranoid but better that than the possibility of a tragic outcome.”

Stalking remains an under-reported crime, which has prompted a leading charity to appeal for victims to tell them their experiences.
