The 51-year-old grandmother from Blackwood was gunned down in the Tunisian beach massacre that claimed the lives of 30 Britons.

A national minute's silence was held last week to remember the victims of the attack at the beach resort.

An inquest heard that Trudy Jones died from 'a single gunshot wound to her neck and chest.'

Her family have described her as their 'rock' and say that she was 'always willing to help others.'
