Miss Burns' family said: "Demi was a beautiful, caring young woman who was loved dearly by all her family and friends.

"She always put others before herself and adored her family, especially her mam, gran and pop.

"The hole in our lives she has left will never ever be filled, the light in our hearts has gone out forever. We will miss you always our princess."
