The family of a woman found dead at Salford Quays on Tuesday have issued a heartfelt tribute.

20-year-old Charlotte Burlace-Colquhon was found on 20 December after police rushed to Central Bay and the Salford Watersports Centre.

Their touching tribute said: “My wife, my daughter and I love Charlotte very much and we’re already missing her.
