The family of 24-year-old graduate Carly Lovett who was killed in the Tunisia shootings have paid tribute to their "shining light".

A statement issued by Lincolnshire Police on behalf of her family and fiance said: "Carly was and always will be our beautiful shining light; she was funny, clever, artistic and radiated love and happiness around her.

"We pray with all our hearts that this evil, and such disregard for human life, will end so no other family will feel the pain that we do today and always will.

It also said the support they have received "has been overwhelming and has been a great comfort to us all".

Book claims Ripper killed a further 23 people

A controversial new book about the Yorkshire Ripper claims he killed a further 22 women and a man.

Co-author Tim Tate joined Duncan Wood and Christine Talbot in the Calendar studio.

ABTA: Check with tour operators before travelling

Sean Tipton spoke to Christine Talbot and said travellers should check with their tour operators about any future bookings as many have the option to amend their plans:

He said the Foreign Office has not issued a no travel warning in Tunisia following attacks there at the weekend which killed up to 30 Britons, but that there was clear warnings against travelling to countries like Syria.

Arrangements made by many tour operators to get holidaymakers home from Tunisia had been welcomed by many, he said, but he noted that some travellers chose to stay abroad to "show solidarity" with locals.
