One Facebook user said: "This is heartbreaking, I used to work with her, may she rest in peace. Thinking of her daughter and her family at this sad time."

Penny Humpherston, who lives opposite the home on Prospect Road North, also paid tribute to the mum "with a heart of gold."

She said they were "good friends" and previously went on holidays to Spain and Lanzarote together.

Ms Humpherston said: "She just tried to help everybody. She loved the caring side of her. She idolised her daughter. She was a carer and she loved it.

"It's a bit surreal at the moment."

Inspector Lee Page said: “Our thoughts are with Koreen’s family at this very difficult time and I would like to thank the local community for their support and assistance with our enquiries so far.”
