Terrier inherits £100,000 from former mayor

A FORMER mayor has left £100,000 in her will to her Wire Fox Terrier after she died from a heart attack.

Win Frankland, 63, who died suddenly at home in Great Harwood last December made sure any surviving pets were provided for after her death. Nell, her loyal terrier, is the only living pet and so receives the entire 100k to live out her days in comfort and style.

The ex-mayor of Hyndburn, Lancashire, left £20,000 to her former mayor's attendant and chauffeur Jayne Carmody to care for any pets that outlived her and £80,000 for the creation of a trust fund - income from which will be used for the maintenance of Nell.

Geoffrey Hanson, 82, Miss Frankland's cousin, said: 'Win has left her dog to Jayne with some money to look after it as it meant so much to her.

'Nell was a big part of my cousin's life and she used to walk the dog three or four times a day on the fields opposite her home.'

Miss Frankland, who had kept dogs all her life, also left money to a local church and friend and councillor Susan Haworth.
