THE family of a woman who was allegedly murdered have paid tribute to the 'beautiful angel.'

Simone Grainger, 30, was pronounced dead at her home in Windsor Way, Calcot on Saturday. She died of serious head injuries.

The following tribute is released on behalf of her family:

'We are a family lost in grief on an unprecedented scale.

'Our angel Simone was a young mother, daughter, sister, cousin, granddaughter, niece and a friend to so many. She was beautiful and kind and put so much into being all those things.

'Anyone who new Simone will share our loss and feel the anguish and pain that has ripped through us all at this time.

''Torn away from us in such tragic terms, our memories are all we are left with.

Over the coming days and weeks, we as a family will somehow learn to rebuild, protect and love the two precious little ones left behind.

'We miss you so much Simone, your smile and spirit will never leave us.

'Rest in peace Angel.'

A 32-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of Simone's murder.
