Alice Wool, 19, who lives opposite with her four-month-old daughter, said: “She was an absolutely lovely lady. What has happened is just horrific. I literally can’t believe it.

“She always smiled and waved at me when she used to go out shopping.

“I was out when it happened, but a neighbour told me that there were screams and the little girl ran out of the house and hid behind a tree.

“Then a neighbour came out and took her in before the police arrived. It must have been awful for her and I can’t stop thinking about it.”

Alice said the woman would often share treats with other children in the close-knit neighbourhood.

She also explained how she was regularly seen tending to her beloved garden.

Another neighbour Jamie Douglas, 19, said: “I was sat inside and my girlfriend said she had sen an ambulance. Then it just went mad.
