Tributes have been paid to a hotel receptionist who was found stabbed to death with her colleague.

Alice Adams and Tibor Vass, both 20, were discovered at premises behind the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel, west London, where they worked.

The family of Ms Adams, from Iver Heath, Bucks, said she "touched the hearts of everyone she ever met".

Attila Ban, 31, of New Road, Harlington, is due at the Old Bailey on Tuesday charged with their murders.

Multiple stab wounds

Police found the bodies of Ms Adams and Mr Vass, a Hungarian national, at the property in New Road, Harlington, after concerns were raised for their welfare.

Both Ms Adams and Mr Vass, of Harlington, died from multiple stab wounds. Police said a knife had been recovered.

In a statement, relatives of Ms Adams said: "Her capacity to spread love was unprecedented and her spirit will live on forever."

A spokeswoman for the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel said Ms Adams, Mr Vass and Mr Ban had all worked there as receptionists.

Mr Ban, a Hungarian national, was remanded in custody when he appeared at West London Magistrates' Court on Saturday.
