TRIBUTES are flooding in for a mum who was found dead in her own home.

Kelly Pitt, 44, was discovered at a block of flats by police called to the scene in Newport, Gwent.

Her neighbours paid tribute to the "lovely and honest" mum after police arrested a 25-year-old man on suspicion of murder.

Officers say they are not looking for anyone else in connection to the death.

Flowers have now been laid at the scene as friends and neighbours have paid tribute to the "beautiful" mum.

One neighbour said: "I’ve lived above her for two years she’s a lovely lady. I can’t believe this has happened. The police took my flowers and laid them by the flat."

Another said: "I'm going to miss having someone so lovely and honest living next to me. She’ll truly be missed."

A grieving friend said: "I’ve known her since I was a child and she’s always been so lovely which makes my heart break for her even more because she really wasn’t a nasty person.

"A cruel world with cruel people living in it. Absolutely heartbreaking. Such a lovely lady with a heart of gold."

Gwent Police are appealing for information after she was found "unresponsive" at around 11.30am on May 12.
