In a statement released today by Debra's family, it said: "Debbie Mitchell has lived and worked most of her life in the Liversedge area of West Yorkshire.She is survived by her three daughters and her mother.

"This is a very sad time for all those who knew and loved Debbie especially her children and mum. The support has been overwhelming and we would like to thank all of those who have passed their kind words and tributes on.

"However we would request that people acknowledge the difficult time that the loved ones are going through and respect our privacy."
