A family has paid tribute to a 19-year-old "role model" who was found stabbed to death in Berkshire.

Jane Treasure died shortly after being found early on Tuesday at a property in Ledgers Road, Chalvey, Slough.

Earlier, police had gone to a house in The Crescent, Chalvey, Slough, where they found a 22-year-old man with serious stab wounds.

The incidents have been linked and the male victim remains stable in hospital. A 24-year-old man remains in custody.

He was detained on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.

In a statement, Miss Treasure's family described her as a "motivated, hard-working health care worker and student".

"Jane had great ambitions to work abroad as a professional and had been a keen student studying a national diploma in travel and tourism," read the statement.

"Jane had already attained several distinctions and was a positive role model for her peers.

"Jane's out-going nature and inherent sense of justice and fairness meant she shared wide popularity with students, tutors, work colleagues, friends and family."

Miss Treasure was pronounced dead at the scene despite efforts by paramedics.

The two properties in Chalvey remained cordoned off on Wednesday.
