Tributes have been paid to Ms Scourfield, who volunteered at the UK German Shepherd Rescue centre in West Wales.

Director and Trustee at UK German Shepherd Rescue Suzanne Syers posted on Facebook: “Today is an extremely sad day for all at the UK German Shepherd Rescue.

In the most awful circumstances, last night 06/03/2018, our volunteer, colleague and very much rescue family friend Fiona Scourfield, aka Suzi Wales, tragically lost her life.

“To say the rescue is devastated would be a massive understatement. Suzi was one of our longest standing members who supported the rescue wholeheartedly. Her UK-GSR dog Bruno was her absolute world. Suzi worked tirelessly to make the world a better place for animals & her loss is a huge loss not only to us but to animals worldwide.

“She spent many weekends braving all kinds of weathers fundraising and raising awareness in the South Wales area, and could always be relied upon to help any dog in need."

Western Telegraph:

“We are all in shock at the moment, nobody in our rescue is untouched by her loss, so please bare with us whilst we come to terms with Suzie's devastating loss.

“Our thoughts and condolences are with her family at this tragic time “Rest In Peace Fiona.”

Speaking to the Western Telegraph, St Clears Mayor Cllr Jane Rees said: "It's a shock to the community, you don't have things like this; the emergency services were there promptly.

"Our thoughts are with the family at this time."
