DEVASTATED friends have paid tribute to a young mum who was found dead at her home.

Pals of 22-year-old Jordi-Mai Richardson, from Leicestershire, say they are "heartbroken" and have described her as "one of the nicest people" following her death.

Jordi-Mai was found dead at home in Barwell, near Hinckley, last Monday and leaves behind four-year-old son Logan.

Friend Elle Keogh told how she had passed her driving test just weeks ago and was being considered for a promotion at work.

The 23-year-old told LeicestershireLive: "She always had problems with her mental health, but she was also a really happy person and she was so sociable, always wanting to go out and see people, and loved her drum & bass music.

"She was the sort of person who could enter a room and make everyone smile instantly.
