The inquest into the murder of a pensioner from Wisbech is to be resumed today - more than two years after her death.

Una Crown, 86, was found at her home in Magazine Lane in Wisbech. She had been stabbed multiple times and set on fire.

Last summer, a new team of detectives from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Units re-launched the investigation in the hope it would lead to a breakthrough in the case. Nobody has been charged yet.

Mrs Adey's neighbours in Shropshire said they believed she and her husband might have arranged to go on the cruise relatively recently.

Another resident in the hamlet near Albrighton, described Mrs Adey as a friendly woman who was "just a very good neighbour".

"I still can't believe it is Sally," the neighbour said. "You don't expect anything like this to happen when you are on a cruise and it's just dreadfully sad."
