The flat concerned, which is believed to be a North Hertfordshire Homes property, is above the shops at the centre of the estate.

One neighbour said this morning: “There was such a mess and so much blood, she’s had it bad. She was a very nice woman.”

Another elderly neighbour added: “Let’s hope she’s in a better place, bless her.”
