    A woman who was found dead at her home in Cannock had a "bubbly personality" and will be "sorely missed".

    When Kerry Cast's body was found on Saturday, Staffordshire Police said they were treating her death as unexplained.

    The force says initial post-mortem examination results proved inconclusive and more tests will be carried out.

    In a statement, her mother Kathleen Weaver said she was a "bright, beautiful, loving daughter".

    Officers say Kerry had only moved back to Cannock around three months ago from Crawley, West Sussex and they want to hear from people there who knew her or who may have visited her in Staffordshire.
