She said: "Alan walked in to his bedroom with nine-year-old daughter to find his beloved wife and mother of his child lying lifeless.

"Michelle had fallen out of the family bed after an early night and it is believed she sustained injuries that led to her tragic death.

"You can only imagine the trauma that this discovery has had not only on Alan, but his poor daughter at such a sensitive age and stage in her life.

"This poor little girl had to witness her dad attempt to resuscitate mum - anything we can do to help ease this pain would be much appreciated.'

A JustGiving page has now been set up to raise £5,000 to help cover funeral costs for Michelle's family.
