A woman who died following an incident at a property in Cambourne on Wednesday has been identified by police.

Sally Elizabeth Cavender, 55, of Orchard Road, Sawston, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, in a critical condition after emergency services were called to a property in Lamb Drove at 1.35am.

She died on Wednesday afternoon after her condition deteriorated.

Today (Friday), her family have released a statement in tribute to her.

It said: “Sally was a much-loved daughter and sister and we are all very shocked and saddened by this turn of events. As her family we want to remember her as a bright, bubbly girl, who loved to travel and go to concerts and was full of laughter and fun.

“Sally didn’t have any children, but her mum, brother, sister and extended family are all supporting each other. While we understand the media interest, we please ask for privacy so that, as a family, we can grieve at this very difficult time.

“We would like to thank the paramedics and staff at the intensive care unit for all their attempts to save her life, and we have every confidence in the ongoing police investigation.”
