Friend of Jane Wiggetts says they were 'like sisters'

When the police came to tell me she was dead, I cried my eyes out.

I really loved that woman. We were like sisters.

[...] she was happy-go-lucky and the last time I saw her was when she said that she was going to Cornwall.

The last time I saw her she seemed really happy. I have taken [her death] very badly."

– Angela McCauley, close friend of Mrs Wiggett.
