A husband who discovered his wife had died on the A414 in St Albans after going out to search for her has paid tribute to her.

Young mother Sinead Hare, 28, died after her car (a black Renault Clio) overturned near the junction with Potters Crouch Lane on Sunday afternoon (October 4).

Her husband, Nathan Symes, found Sinead at about 1.15am after he went to look for her following her failure to return home. It is currently unknown how the car left the road.

Sinead also leaves behind her parents Chris and Kathleen Hare, brother Peter, and daughter Orla Rose Symes.

Nathan said: “Sinead was a gorgeous, caring, and trustworthy person, whilst also being a truly independent woman who just enjoyed having fun, and whose smile and laughter was infectious with anyone she came across.

“She was the most fantastic and dedicated mum to our beautiful daughter Orla Rose, for whom I am eternally grateful for and I vow that Orla Rose will grow up knowing her mummy.

“I am so proud and honoured that although Sinead and I were together for almost seven years, I was able to call her my wife for 106 days.”

He continued: “Sinead will always be a part of me and she has made me a better person for just knowing her. There is now a massive hole in our family due to Sinead leaving us that will never be filled.

“However, neither I, nor Orla Rose, will ever forget her. We will continue to love her forever and always.”

Sinead was born in University College London Hospital in 1987 and grew up in Borehamwood, attending Monksmead First School, Furzehill Middle School and Hertswood Upper School.

She worked at MPL Home Ltd, in Hemel Hempstead.
