Tragic mum Emma Watson died two years after the father of her children was killed in a speedboat accident.

Emma Watson, of Gowkthrapple, Wishaw, was found dead at her home on Sunday, November 10, just days after she was reported missing.

Police said the young mum had been found 'safe and well', however her body was discovered days later.

Emma, 32, leaves behind four children, two of whom also lost their dad, Larkhall man Sandy Hamilton who died in a boating accident off the Dumfries and Galloway coast in May 2017.

One friend posted on social media: "Emma you were the best friend I could have ever ask for. I'll sadly miss your wee voice so much.

"Your back with the one and only guy you ever truly loved so much Sandy Hamilton. RIP honey. Fly high."

Another read: "RIP Emma. Your with Sandy now." 

Sandy, 35, alongside his cousin Kevin McKinlay, 46, was found dead after a major search involving several rescue teams was launched following a boating incident off the Dumfries and Galloway coast.

Following the accident we revealed Hamilton and McKinlay were part of a notorious puppy smuggling ring.

They were believed to have worked hand in hand with notorious puppy trader Robert Brownlie to bring in thousands of designer puppies from Ireland to Scotland.

It was also reported they had been using the speedboat at the time of their death to evade being intercepted by animal cruelty investigators or police - both of whom were well aware of their large scale operations.

The Record told how Hamilton was also due to stand trial accused of killing two pensioners in a car crash.
