Dog breeder Linda Hill from Clenchwarton, near King’s Lynn, killed in van crash after Crufts show

A Norfolk dog breeder and championship show judge has been killed in a crash while driving home from Crufts dog show.

Linda Hill, from Clenchwarton near King's Lynn, was pronounced dead at the scene after her van left the A14 in Leicestershire and hit a tree just before 5.30pm on Saturday.

The 62-year-old was secretary of the Pyrenean Mountain Dog Club of Great Britain and had been at the show representing the breed with her dog George, who was uninjured in the crash.

She and her husband of 41 years, Chris, moved to Clenchwarton about four years ago after previously living in Southampton, Cambridge, Yorkshire and Suffolk.

'Because of her involvement in dogs she was well liked and, I hope, well respected in the dog-showing community,' Mr Hill said.
