The woman killed by cattle on the Pennine Way was named today.

Liz Crowsley, 49, a veterinary surgeon from Warrington, Cheshire, was trampled by a herd of cows as she walked on Sunday with her two dogs near the hamlet of Gayle, near Hawes, in Wensleydale.

Ms Crowsley, who worked at the Willows Veterinary Group, was on a weekend break in the Yorkshire Dales.

Her body was found in the corner of a field, next to a drystone wall, by another visitor to the area after a ‘commotion’ was heard.

Police said the cows acted aggressively because Ms Crowsley had two dogs with her.

North Yorkshire Police and the Health and Safety Executive are investigating the incident.
