THE body of a 51-year-old woman and 31 dead dogs were discovered yesterday in a van at Ferryhill, Co Durham. A hosepipe led from the exhaust into the vehicle. Describing the episode as 'a very tragic incident,' police said there were no suspicious circumstances.

The woman is understood to be a widow known for animal rescue work. Last year neighbours complained about the noise and smell of her home which housed more than 40 strays.
