A post mortem examination revealed Ms Magda-Calancea died as a result of multiple stab wounds.

Her brother Razvan Milea said she was "happy, laughing at any jokes, and enjoyed life".

Mr Milea said his sister, who has two other brothers that also live in the UK and another in France, "liked finding objects in the shape of a heart - even popcorn".

He said his sister had a number of jobs since moving to the UK, including working in a chocolate factory, and that she was "a normal human being - she was like everybody".
