A woman murdered at her home in Manchester was "a brilliant mother" who was "loved dearly by all", her family has said.

In a tribute issued through police, Ms Morris's family said: "Hyacinth, you were a great daughter to your father. A beautiful sister, a wonderful sister-in-law, aunty, great aunty and a dear cousin to all.

"You were loved dearly by all and touched our lives in a positive way.

"Most of all you were a brilliant mother who was adored by your son. You both described each other as each other's best friend.

"We will miss your beautiful smile, your sense of humour and in fact, everything about you.

"Rest in peace till we see you again. Your loving family."
