Disturbing video footage shows two people bravely trying to fight off the dog as the woman was pinned down on the floor.

Posting on Facebook, the pensioner's son revealed his mum's arm was broken by the force of the bite with "a large chunk of her tendons and muscle" removed.

He said: "The lady concerned is my 74-year-old mother who is stable following the attack. The incident occurred following a 'minor collision' of her car and another member of the public's car at the roundabout.

"We cannot thank enough the two occupants of the other vehicle involved in the collision who bravely and desperately sought to fight off the dog for many minutes.

"Thank you also to the London Ambulance Service and Metropolitan Police who both attended in significant numbers. The dog is no longer loose after another member of the public bravely stopped her car during the attack and let the dog in her car.

"She then drove it to the Shell petrol garage on Yeading Lane where it also bit her arm, say the Met Police. Officers then arrived and took control of the dog."

Local resident Alina Uka wrote on social media: "A woman was attacked by a dog near Shell petrol station. My husband was charging his car and heard a woman screaming as her arm was being severed.

"So tragic. Dog ran away after being hit on the head, not sure who was the owner."

A spokesperson for the Met Police said: "Police were called at 10.54pm on January 26 to White Hart Roundabout, Northolt. Two vehicles had been in a collision.

"As those involved were exchanging details one woman was approached and attacked by a dog, causing injury to her arm. The other people began trying to help her. The dog did not belong to them.

"Another member of the public, seeing the incident, stopped her car and opened the door. The dog got in and she took it to a petrol garage off Yeading Lane, where it bit her arm.

"Police arrived and took control of the dog. It was taken to a police station where efforts to locate the owner are ongoing. The two women's injuries are not life-threatening."

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson confirmed they "treated one patient for significant injuries before taking them to hospital and the other patient, who had minor injuries, made their own way to hospital".
