A man has appeared in court and pleaded guilty to the murder of a woman in Buckinghamshire.

Danielle Van Der Zyden, 28, was found dead on 4 March at West End Street, High Wycombe. She had multiple stab wounds.

Anthony Edward Mullett, 45, of West End Street, High Wycombe, appeared at Reading Crown Court on Friday and admitted her murder.

He is due to return to court for sentencing on 7 October.

Ms Van Der Zyden's family said in a statement: "Danielle had reached a point in her life when her future was looking brighter than ever before.

"That future was brutally taken from her as she was taken from us.

"Our lives have changed forever and the sadness we feel, now that her light is no longer with us, is beyond measure."
