It was with great sadness that we heard the news of Beth’s untimely death. Beth had just completed her 2nd year Environmental Geography course in the department. She was an enthusiastic and committed student and popular with her class mates. She was a warm hearted, kind student with a gift for communication. Beth particularly enjoyed the field work involved in her degree programme and following on from field courses in the Lake District and Iceland was all set to carry out her final year dissertation project on glaciers. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
