The family of a mother who died after suffering serious head injuries at a house in Norfolk have paid tribute to their "beautiful" daughter.

Angela Crompton, 34, whose maiden name was Phillips, was found by police in Arminghall Lane, Arminghall, near Norwich, on Monday.

She died in Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, on Wednesday.

The family said Angela "was a beautiful and vivacious young woman with a gift for artistry and creativity".

"We have lost a daughter, sister, mother and aunt in the most horrific circumstances," the family said in a statement.

"It is a tragedy for everyone that her young life has ended so abruptly.

"We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff at the Norfolk and Norwich and Addenbrooke's hospitals who made Angela's final hours as bearable as possible, and our thanks to the police for their ongoing support during the impossible days ahead."

Before she died, her husband Thomas Crompton, 39, of Arminghall Lane, Arminghall, was charged with assault with intent to cause GBH.

He appeared before Norwich Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, where he was remanded in custody to appear before Norwich Crown Court on Tuesday 26 June.

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out to find the cause of death, said police.
