AMERICAN Cocker breeder and exhibitor Marie Borresen of the Charles Dickens kennel has died in a fire at her home in Sweden.

Firemen managed to save 11 of her dogs but two died. The house and kennels were destroyed in the blaze.

It is understood that Ms Borresen could not be found at first, but when she did not arrive for work the following morning the search continued at her home and her body was eventually discovered.

Ms Borresen bred particolours who won all over Europe and the US.
