A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a woman who was stabbed at a house in Greater Manchester.

Police found Victoria Adams, 22, with stab wounds to the chest at the property in Springwood Hall Road, Oldham, just after 10:00 GMT on Sunday.

She was taken to hospital for treatment where she suffered a cardiac arrest and died, police said.

The 29-year-old man who was arrested remains in police custody for questioning.

'Hole in our hearts'

In a statement, her family said: "The whole purpose of her life was to look after and care for her daughter who she adored.

"Victoria was bright, funny, intelligent and caring. Her death has devastated all her family and friends and we do not know how we will cope without her.

"She has left behind a massive hole in our hearts which will never be mended."

Det Ch Insp Ian Crewe said: "The death of this young mother will no doubt touch many lives and leave a lot of people desperate for answers.

"I want them to know we are doing all we can to thoroughly investigate what happened."
