She continued to work on Network North and its successor, the southern edition of Tyne Tees News and in 1996, following the arrival of Mike Neville switched to presenting news bulletins from the Teesside studios.

More recently, Dawn has been seen most presenting a variety of regional programmes for Tyne Tees, including a comedy panel show called Spoof!

Dawn took voluntary redundancy from Tyne Tees in 2000 following the decision to merge the Tyne Tees and Border newsrooms.

What a lovely lady. The beautiful Ms Thewlis can now be seen most nights on BBC 1s Look North for the north east and cumbria next to the goddess that is Carol Malia. To be honest I only watch Look North because of Dawn and Carol! Sad eh!
