The family of Rosemary Shearman, said: "Our mother has been taken from us in an unbelievably shocking and cruel way. We are finding it very difficult to come to terms with her loss and the way it happened.

"She was a devoted grandmother and although she never fully recovered from the death of our father nearly five years ago, she lived a very full and busy life."
