The tribute, sent out on behalf of the family in East Sussex, added: "She always cared and never forgot anyone's birthday, always had a smile and a zest for life.

"It's with great sadness that she's no longer with us and as a family we are completely devastated.

"She will be sorely missed and always in our hearts.

"We ask for our privacy to be respected at this tragic time."

A post-mortem examination took place on Sunday but further forensic tests are needed to establish the cause of death.

Two men, aged 19 and 55, were questioned until Sunday evening and the death is currently unexplained.
