The woman who died in a crash on the A47 at Dereham last week has been named by police.

Kim Utting was 52. She was a passenger in a car travelling east when it was involved in the crash on Valentines Day.

Kim attended Shipdham Primary School and then Wayland High School at Watton. On leaving school Kim worked at Watton Post Office for several years. She married Ken Knight in 1981 and they had two children, Emma (30) and Jamie (29). Kim ran boarding kennels at Wood Rising for many years. During this time she set up and ran the Old English Mastiff Club Rescue. After selling the business to PACT Animal Sanctuary, Kim moved to Litcham where she married David Utting and had a third child, Dudley (11).

Kim was very prominent in the Dog Show Scene; having enjoyed great success in breeding and showing English Mastiffs during which she was known under the 'Heffalump' Affix. Having had four champions, her highlight being 'Womble' winning best of breed at Crufts in 2008 her most recent champion success was with 'Hovis', Womble's son, who was runner up top Mastiff 2012.

Kim also ran Companion Dog Shows for a number of years, raising money for Mastiff rescue.

In a statement her family paid tribute:

“Kim always had a smile on her face and was a very kind, caring and affectionate person. She was loved by everyone she met and will be very sadly missed by all her family, friends and those who knew her through her passion - the dog show scene.”

Police are still looking for the drivers of a white flatbed lorry and a small black Peugeot car in connection with the incident.

Anyone with any information should call the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
