Anna’s family released the following statement today (Friday): “Our dear Anna, taken from us too soon, a waste of a truly special individual.
“The kindest soul, gentle and caring to the core. Her giggles, smile and sarcastic wit would light up a room. She was dedicated and hardworking, would never take a day off, but if she did you could be sure to find her in her pink spotty dressing gown.
“Effortlessly bright, her patients were lucky to have her. She is and always will be the best daughter, partner, auntie, sister, granddaughter, niece and so much more. The list could go on because she was truly beloved by all. Anyone who got to meet our Anna Spanner is truly blessed.”
An investigation into the collision continues and the driver of the lorry, a 27-year-old man from Hertford, Hertfordshire, who was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving, has been released under investigation.
