Pistorius was in 'fabulous relationship' with girlfriend

Oscar Pistorius had been in a "healthy, fabulous relationship" for the last few months with his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, her agent Sarit Tomlinson has said.

Ms Tomlison described Ms Steenkamp, who has been named in unconfirmed local reports as the victim of this morning's shooting, as an "absolute angel on earth".

Responding to reports of her death, she told Sky News that Ms Steenkamp "was the kindest, most unbelievable girl".

Police have yet to confirm the identity of the victim beyond saying she was a 30-year-old woman.
