'Heartbroken' daughter, 27, was found dead on the M4 after her grandmother died of coronavirus then she was unable to go to the funeral because of lockdown rules

A 'heartbroken' 27-year-old daughter has been found dead on the M4 after being unable to go to her grandmother's funeral because of coronavirus lockdown rules.  
Abigail Hussey was found in the early hours of the morning in the carriageway of the motorway after losing her 93-year-old grandmother to Covid-19 and being too worried to travel from Penllergaer, South Wales, to south-east England to say goodbye.
Emergency services tried to revive her but she was tragically declared dead at the scene near Swansea. Her death comes weeks after fears that up to 150,000 could die from non-Covid-19 causes due to the lockdown, including suicides and domestic violence.

Abigail's father, Alan Hussey, told The Sun Online that his daughter was devastated that she couldn't travel to her grandmother's funeral 200 miles away. He believes that the cause of his daughter's death was suicide. 
'I'll never know what was in her head at that time but I think her nan's death just two weeks ago from the virus contributed to it.
'She was extremely upset and sad when nan died so suddenly. Abby was desperate to go and say goodbye to her at the service, but she was worried about breaking the lockdown travel ban.'
Last month, columnist Fraser Nelson wrote in the Telegraph that he'd been told by a Whitehall insider that early estimates and models projected up to 100,000 people losing their lives for lockdown-related reasons other than the virus itself.

Mr Hussey added that he was shocked by the news, because the last time they'd spoken was the evening before she was found, when she seemed fine.

The heartbroken father said that his psychology graduate daughter had spend her final day stripping down and repairing a mini-motorbike she'd had since childhood.   
He added that it wasn't unusual for her to take a nighttime walk if she was having trouble sleeping. But he thought it was strange that on that last occasion she left her house she didn't take one of the dogs. 
Remembering his daughter, he described her as a wonderful, honest woman who cared deeply about the people in her life and had a fondness for animals. 
Police have appealed for any drivers who may have seen Abigail before her death and asked them to check dash-cam footage.
They say dog-loving Abigail was known to have been on a bridge close to the motorway before she was found at 4.30am on Tuesday.
A spokesman said: 'South Wales Police is currently investigating the death and sudden death of a 27 year old woman from Swansea. She has been named as Abigail Hussey from Penllergaer.
'At around 4:30am on Tuesday 12th May a report was received of a female having been located in the carriageway of the M4 motorway, between junctions 47 and 48.
'Emergency services attended but despite immediate medical assistance she was declared deceased.
'South Wales Police is appealing for any witnesses who may have travelled along the A48 Swansea Road, Penllergaer in the vicinity of the motorway overbridge where the female is known to have been, who may have seen her at the location.
'Motorists who were travelling along the motorway and may have seen this female on the overbridge, or a gold coloured Citroen C4 at this time, and may have dash cam footage are also asked to contact South Wales Police on 101 quoting reference 2000163094. Family members are currently being supported by a specially trained police officer.'
