The family of a woman who died following a fire in a Stirling hair salon have paid tribute to her.

Ahdie Khayatzadeh, 46, whose married name was Yazdanparast, died in hospital on Saturday night following injuries she received in a blaze at Venus Hair and Beauty, in Maxwell Place, Stirling.

A murder investigation is under way following the businesswoman's death.

A man was also seriously injured in the fire and is being treated at a hospital in Glasgow.

In a statement, Ms Khayatzadeh's family said: "Ahdie was a wonderful woman who was devoted to her family and spent every spare minute she could with them.

"She was hard working and entrepreneurial, and was well known in the city to the many patrons of her businesses.

"We are devastated by her untimely death, which has left a huge void in our lives which can never be filled.

"As a very close family, we are finding it very difficult to come to terms with our loss and ask to be left to grieve in peace."

Police have said previously they are not looking for anyone in connection with the fire.
