A crime scene investigation van remains on the street.

The woman has been named on Facebook as Jayne, by a woman, Pat Chambers, who said she is 'heartbroken' at the death of her 'beautiful' sister.

Jamie Howson, who lives on the estate, said: "I live on that road, it's such a shame. The lady who sadly has died always used to say hi when passing."

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
