Ms Allsop, 37, who had gone to bed when the incident happened and was woken by the emergency services, said: "It was just all a blur. I cannot remember what happened. I had gone to bed. I didn't see anything. I just thought they were playing CDs and talking about boys and make-up.

"I went out and then a neighbour covered me in a blanket. I kissed her - it was four hours before they took her body away because I did not want to let her go. I told her she was my angel and I'd loved her since the day she was born. I can remember her big blue eyes staring."

The housewife, who is the mother of a four-year-old, said the death has left her numb. "I'm empty inside and lost. I keep expecting her to come through the door. We had a girls' night in. Jasmine was straightening my hair and plucking my eyebrows and Olivia was here.

"Jasmine was a gorgeous, lovely, bubbly character. They (Jasmine and Olivia) were best friends."

“Such speculation is upsetting and disrespectful to the victims’ families, and can also have unintended effects on important lines of enquiry and evidence ahead of any future court case.”
