TRIBUTES have been paid to a 77-year-old Ceredigion woman found dead at her home.

Dyfed-Powys Police is continuing its investigation into an incident at a residential property in Pennant, Llanon, Ceredigion in which Mrs Mavis Long died on Friday, May 10.

An 80-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder, and has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

A family tribute said: “This was an extremely tragic incident in which we have lost Mavis, who was loved and will be sorely missed.

“We would like to thank the local community for all their kind words and support at this difficult time. We would now like time to grieve and would ask for privacy in which to do so.”

An inquest has been opened and adjourned by the Ceredigion coroner until a date to be fixed.

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokesman said: “People living in the area will be aware of an increased police presence in the area.

“We would like to reassure the community that the police are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the death.”
