The family of an Eastwood woman who died while on holiday in Ingoldmells have described her as a ‘beautiful person who was always there for everyone’.

Caroline Fisher, 52, of Eastwood, died following an incident at Buzz Bar in Ingoldmells on Friday, July 20. Police have since launched a murder investigation.

She was holidaying in Ingoldmells, Lincolnshire with her partner Yvette and her daughter Kerry.

Kerry, who is 27 and a mum-of-three, said: "Mum was singing Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me by George Michael on the karaoke at the bar before it happened. We got up and sang ABBA after.

"We were just out having a nice night. She loved singing. She was always up for singing and dancing and loved taking her grandkids out.

"My mum's things are everywhere in the house so we are always reminded of her but we need to stay strong for each other and my daughter."

Kerry's partner Ryan, 31, who was also on the trip, said: "She was a beautiful, fun person who was always there for everyone. She always helped people out if anyone wanted.

"She was a loving grandma that loved her grandkids so dearly. She was always there to have a laugh and crack a joke.

"She was a harmless woman. She was fragile and frail. There is a big empty hole that can never be resolved.

"We can't describe how we feel right now. It's like our whole world has crumbled," added Ryan.

Caroline, who was known as Kaz to her friends, had recently broken her leg and had it in a cast. Her family said she was partially sighted and sometimes used a walking stick.

People from Eastwood have also paid tribute.

Susan Bagshaw, manager of the Eastwood Volunteer Bureau charity, where Caroline had volunteered, said: "She used to help on reception and make tea and coffee for people. She was very friendly.

"She got on well with everyone. She volunteered for about a year. It was awful. I'm gobsmacked."

Caroline was a regular at The Greasley Castle in Castle Street.

Sarah Newby, 41, landlady of the pub since January, told the Post: "She was just lovely. We got on really well. I knew her partner well.

"A lot of the locals knew her and a lot of them are devastated and can't believe it.

"We are a massive family in this place and we are going to discuss doing something as a pub."

Friend Graham Heighton, 45, said: "She was bubbly - a happy go lucky person. She was always having fun. I only just heard about it and it is gut-wretching.

"In a community like this we are all together and we look out for each other. When something happens like that to someone so close and local it is massive."

One of her close friends, Gwen Gillespie, who is supporting Caroline's partner Yvette, said: "She had a heart of gold.

"Kaz was such a nice a person. Everyone knew how nice she was. My heart goes out to Yvette. They were on holiday for a few days - to enjoy a nice break away."

Dav Singh, who owns Hilltop Convenience store which Caroline visited most days, said: "The news is really shocking. You don't kind of realise the impact it has when it's so close to home. She was always smiling and having conversations."

Three people arrested on suspicion of murder have been released by police - two on bail and one with no further action.

Lincolnshire Police said the 30-year-old woman and 31-year-old man were released on bail in the early hours of this morning (July 23).

The 29-year-old woman has been released with no further action.

Lincolnshire Police said the investigation into Ms Fisher's death "is continuing".
