Tributes have been paid to Becky Dobson, who worked at Vets4Pets in Worthing.
Vets4Pets Worthing 'devastated' by Becky Dobson's loss

Tributes have been paid to one of the youngest victims of the Grand Canyon helicopter crash, Becky Dobson, 27, who worked as a veterinary receptionist for Vets4Pets in Worthing, West Sussex.

Vets4Pets told the Worthing Herald that the practice was "devastated” by Becky’s loss. A spokesman said: “She will be greatly missed by all her colleagues in the practice and by our clients. Our thoughts are with Becky’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”

The other Britons killed in Saturday’s crash were Becky’s boyfriend, Stuart Hill, 30 and his brother Jason Hill, 32. It is understood that three other Britons were also injured in the crash, together with the pilot, Scott Booth, 42.

The helicopter was on a tour of the Grand Canyon when it came down at around 5.20pm local time, 12.20am, in Arizona. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.

Amur leopard cubs caught on camera

News Story 1
 A pair of Amur leopards have been captured on camera for the first time since their birth. The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland announced the birth in July, but with human presence being kept to a minimum, it was not known how many cubs had been born.

Motion sensitive cameras have now revealed that two cubs emerged from the den - at least one of which may be released into the wild in Russia within the next two or three years. The Amur leopard habitat is not open to the public, to help ensure the cubs retain their wild instincts and behaviour. Image © RZSS
