A woman who died in hospital after being found seriously injured has been described as "a wonderful mother".

Police have been granted more time to question a 54-year-old man on suspicion of the murder of Elizabeth Jordan, 53, known as Betty, in Bangor, Gwynedd.

She was found at a property in Trem y Garnedd on Monday morning.

Mrs Jordan's son and daughter said her "kind and selfless nature was the character trait that everyone knew".

In a statement, Mrs Jordan's children said: "Nothing was ever too much for mum to help anyone in need and she always refused any gesture in return.

"She was truly loved by family, friends, work colleagues and all who had the pleasure and privilege of meeting her.

"We are so very proud to be able to call her our mother, best friend and biggest role model in our lives."

They added: "We also want to extend our sincere appreciation to the emergency services who attended the scene with such urgency and have treated us all with the utmost respects and courtesy in our time of need, for that no words can ever describe our gratitude for all involved."

On Tuesday, North Wales Police was granted an additional 36 hours detention by a special court in Caernarfon to question a local man.

Det Chief Insp Kearney said: "I'd like to extend my thanks to the local community for the support they have shown Mrs Jordan's family and our investigation but I'd still like to hear from anyone else who can assist."

Officers are appealing for information on any suspicious activity in the Trem y Garnedd area on Monday morning.
