The 59-year-old has been described by her family as a self-sacrificing woman who was “loving and caring”.

A murder investigation has begun into her death.

In a statement, her family said: “We, the sons and daughters of Mary, would like to thank everyone for their kind words at this difficult time.

“We would also like to say a huge thank you to the fire service who tried to rescue our mother from this horrific fire that makes no sense.

“Our mum devoted her life to us, her nine children, and went without herself to provide the best that she could for us. Full story.
