Ms Seymour's mother Wendy Bowler told MailOnline her daughter had sent her messages from Cambodia saying she and her friend were feeling unwell, and that they were going to try to sleep it off.

Natalie's mother told Mail Online: "They were doing all these sight-seeing things, she loved all that sort of stuff.

"She told us every day where she was going to be going and what she was going to be doing, she always really wanted to travel and just wanted a break from work."

Miss Seymour's family were told of her death on Tuesday. The Foreign Office said it was supporting her family.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are supporting the family of a British woman who has died in Cambodia, and are in contact with the local authorities investigating her death."
