The family of a woman who died after falling from a car park in Lowestoft have said she was a 'beautiful, intelligent' girl.

CCTV images released yesterday showed Fiona Anderson wandering the streets clutching a teddy bear before the incident.

The bodies of her three children were found at her home.

Her family statement said: "This was not our Fiona – she was not herself. She cared passionately about others but often brought stress on herself by caring too much. She was gentle but ended up under too much pressure.

"As a family we were close but she would often push us away, keen to do her own thing and not to listen when we offered support.

"We wish more had been done to recognise her mental health problems, which could be masked by her intelligence and creativity."
