They revealed how Ms Newton, a big Stoke City fan, loved working with children and was studying sports at college while holding three jobs down at the same time.

In a statement, her family added: We just cant believe whats happened. Our hearts are broken and our family is devastated.

She was into sport in a big way. She loved playing football and used to give up her weekends to work as an assistant coach for the under 7s. 

She was a young woman in the prime of life, so precious and loving and such a big part of our lives.

We just adored her. Family meant everything to Meg and were all struggling with whats happened. It just doesnt feel real.
