MARELLE Sturrock's heartbroken parents have paid tribute to their daughter who was the "happiest person".

The mum-to-be, 35, was found dead at her home on Jura Street in Glasgow last week.

Her devastated parents, Colin and Lorna, have today released a statement.

In the emotional piece, they revealed that their grandson was going to be called Jayden.

They also thanked family, friends, Marelle's workmates and cops for their help following her death.

The statement read: “We are devastated following the deaths of our daughter, Marelle, and soon to be grandson, Jayden Sturrock.

“Marelle was the happiest person you could ever meet and was always looking to help others the best she could.

“Marelle and her partner doted on each other, and this incident has come as a total shock to all who knew her.
