Staff at Kinfauns Veterinary Centre release statement following the death of vet Susan McCann

Kinfauns Veterinary Centre has released a statement following the passing of kind-natured veterinary surgeon, Susan McCann.

The statement reads: “It is with great sadness that we can confirm the cyclist tragically killed in the accident on the A133 London Road in Clacton, on Tuesday 8th October, was our vet Susan McCann.

“Susan was on her way to work at Kinfauns Veterinary Centre in Little Clacton, where she worked for the last 12 months. During that time, she proved to be extremely popular with colleagues and clients.”

It continued: “Susan, 49, grew up in East Kilbride in Scotland, but worked in Essex for many years, living in Thorpe-le-Soken, near Clacton. She is survived by her sister Maureen McCann, who lives in Ireland.

“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 arranging [sic] events and CPD for vets.”

Kinfauns Veterinary Centre practice manager Ange Hoy today paid tribute to Susan.

Miss 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.”

Restriction zone lifted at Suffolk chicken farm

A one-kilometre restriction zone around a commercial chicken farm in mid-Suffolk has been lifted, following the completion of surveillance testing for avian influenza H5N3 with negative results.

Some 27,000 birds on the premises were culled after a veterinary surgeon identified the disease while investigating a fall in egg production. Poultry keepers are urged to take action to reduce the risk of disease in their flock by following government advice on biosecurity.
