A neighbour, Dean Cummings, 28, said at the time: “I’ve known her all my life. She was a nice lady and didn’t have a bad word to say about anybody.

“She was always happy with a smile on her face. She had a disabled daughter and an older son who’s about 25.

Tributes were laid outside her flat, with a colleague’s card reading: “Judith, can’t believe we are not going to see you or that smiling face and your laugh again. We are all going to miss you. Love and kisses, Meals on Wheels.”
