An Essex vet has died in a road accident in Clacton.
Susan McCann, 49, was cycling to Kinfauns Veterinary Centre in Little Clacton, where she had worked for 12 months. During that time, she had proved to be extremely popular with colleagues and clients.
Susan grew up in East Kilbride, Scotland, but worked in Essex for many years, living in Thorpe-le-Soken, near Clacton.
She attended the University of Glasgow, qualifying as a vet in 1993. She was closely involved in the Essex Veterinary Society as president, helping to arrange events and CPD for vets.
Kinfauns Veterinary Centre practice manager Ange Hoy said: “Susan was extremely kind natured and had a wicked sense of humour. Her bubbly character meant everyone liked her, and her passing leaves a massive hole in the practice.
“She dedicated her life to the veterinary world and was popular with clients because of the care she gave their pets.
“Everyone at the practice has been devastated by the news and we send our condolences to her sister, Maureen, and Aunt, Teresa.”
