In a statement, they said: “Rachel has been taken from us suddenly and we are unable to come to terms with the fact we will never see her beautiful face and smile again.

“As a family we were all so close, sharing jokes and precious time together, and the hole that has been left with the loss of Rachel is irreparable.

“We are truly devastated.”

An investigation launched by Nottinghamshire Police after her body was discovered saw a suspect quickly arrested on suspicion of murder.

“Specially trained officers are in the process of providing them with support and this will continue during this difficult time,” she added.
