The children of a woman whose body was discovered at a caravan site in Clacton have today paid tribute to her, as investigations into her death continue.

Police in Essex were sent to the Valley Farm Holiday Park at 11am on Monday when concerns were raised for the welfare of 52-year-old Jacky Parker, who was inside a caravan.

Police found Jacky’s body but a post mortem the following day was not able to identify the cause of death – further tests have since been carried out and the death is being treated as unexplained.

A statement, released by Jacky’s children, said: “We are all completed devastated by this news. Our mum will truly be missed and loved forever.

“We are all deeply heartbroken and would appreciate being left alone at this difficult time as we grieve over our loss.”
