The family of Sophie McDonald, whose body was found at a house in Iddesleigh Terrace in Dawlish this week have paid tribute to her, describing her as a loving mum, daughter, sister and friend.
They say they would like to be left in peace, to come to terms with events and grieve.
36-year-old James McDonald, from Dawlish has been charged with the murder of Sophie McDonald and remains in custody to appear at Exeter Magistrates Court tomorrow (Saturday 31st January).
A murder investigation is underway after the body of a 36-year-old woman was discovered in Dawlish this morning, 29 January.
The body was found at a house in Iddesleigh Terrace. A 36-year-old man from Dawlish was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and is in police custody.
Dawlish may have started 2014 by hitting the headlines in the floods, but the town is ending the year on a high.
Residents have joined an online craze by making their own video, singing and dancing to Pharrell Williams' hit song Happy.
The Government will spend 15 and a half million pounds on flood defences in Somerset over the next six years.
More than four million (4.2) will go towards the Somerset Levels and Moors. Seven thousand properties are expected to benefit from the money.
The Treasury has also promised more funding to improve the rail link through Dawlish which was badly damaged in the winter storms.
Dawlish railway station has now re-opened after being closed due to safety fears.
Big waves had come over the sea wall, threatening the line, but the weather has now subsided enough.
The mainline railway station is closed at Dawlish for safety reasons because waves are coming over the sea wall.
Buses are being arranged to serve the station, but there's no estimate for when these will be in place.
Trains can run through, with a speed restriction.
On the trains, the CrossCountry service is suspended between Exeter St Davids and Newton Abbot due to poor weather conditions along the sea wall.
Tickets are being accepted on First Great Western services.
CrossCountry services won't run through Dawlish until around 11:00. First Great Western will still run, although may be delayed because of speed restrictions.
TRAINS are being cancelled and delayed on the Plymouth to Exeter railway line as "huge waves" crash over the repaired track at Dawlish.
It has led to the following Tweet from a passenger:
Dawlish train line in peril already, train is getting a good wash.
Last year the damaged Dawlish line, which was left with its tracks hanging in mid-air after the sea wall collapsed and the foundations were washed away in February, became one of the defining images of the storms that hit the South West.
As the Transport Secretary visits Devon to discuss rail links in the county in the wake of the Dawlish disaster, one of the county's MPs says it is imperative that there should be an alternative route.
We've got to have a reliant system that would mean two lines one going via Dawlish as it currently does and one going through Okehampton and Tavistock, as it now should. And as I've said, the case is compelling.
Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin is in Devon today to discuss new rail links between Exeter and Plymouth.
Network Rail is considering various options for more reliable services after part of the track was washed away in Dawlish last winter.
One is to reopen the old line through Okehampton, where much of the track still exists, Mr McLaughlin will meet campaigners.
The £800 million scheme has the support of local MPs.
