The parents of a woman who was stabbed to death in Cumbria have paid tribute to a "lovely daughter".

Sara Trelore, 44, was found at a house in North Row, Barrow, on 22 November with serious stab wounds. She died at the scene.

A 49-year-old man found at the same address who also had stab wounds was later arrested on suspicion of murder.

Ms Trelore's parents, Cecelia and George Dockeray, said their daughter would be "sadly missed".

Knife recovered

Cumbria Police said they were called to reports of a domestic incident at the property, where an ambulance crew tried to revive Ms Trelore.

In a statement released by the force, her parents said: "She was our daughter and we loved her dearly. She was a lovely auntie and sister and she will be sadly missed by all."

A police spokesman added: "A 49-year-old man from Barrow suffered serious abdominal stab wound injuries and was taken to Furness General Hospital for treatment.

"He remains in police custody whilst receiving treatment.

"He has been arrested on suspicion of murder and will be formally interviewed by detectives when he is released from hospital."

A knife was recovered from the scene.

Police have said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the death.
