Sharon in stitches on 'Six One'

SOME RTE viewers may have been taken aback yesterday when 'Six One' news presenter Sharon Ni Bheolain was seen sporting a plaster on her forehead as she read the evening news.

But an RTE spokeswoman said the 41-year-old anchorwoman, pictured, is fine and the wound is not serious. It was not clear what caused the cut to her forehead, which required a couple of stitches. They will be removed tomorrow.

"It's just covering a couple of stitches. It's no big deal," the spokeswoman said.
