The brother of a pregnant woman who was stabbed to death in London this weekend has said 'a beautiful person's life has been taken away from her'.

Kelly Mary Fauvrelle, 26, was eight months pregnant when she was stabbed at her home in Thornton Heath, south London on Saturday. 

The baby was delivered at the scene and remains in a critical condition in hospital - but a devastated aunt has told her of fears he is 'unlikely to survive'. 

Family and friends of Ms Fauvrelle haven taken to social media to pay tribute. 

Ms Fauvrelle's brother Stephan Alexander Simpson wrote online: 'Words can't describe the pain we're feeling. You couldn't have been a better sister, and I thank you for always being there for me, helping whenever I needed it.

'A beautiful person whose life has been taken away from her. I'll stay strong, so you'll always be in my thoughts. I love you more than you can possibly imagine.'

A photo of Ms Fauvrelle posted online shows her posing with a cake which says 'See you soon, Riley', which is understood to have been her planned name for the youngster.

Kelly Mary Fauvrelle, 26, was found suffering from stab wounds at her home in Thornton Heath, south London, in the early hours of Saturday morning. She was eight months pregnant at the time and her baby, which a relative said is a boy, was taken to hospital.

Ms Fauvrelle was one of six people killed around the country this weekend.

A 37-year-old man arrested on Saturday was released 'under investigation' after being questioned by detectives. A second man, aged 29, arrested later that day remains in custody.

Speaking from her home in Crystal Palace, south east London yesterday, Miss Fauvrelle's aunt said the family know very little about what took place.

Rosa Fauvrelle said: 'It's my husband's niece. He's at the hospital because they are doing a little blessing because they think the baby might not survive.

'Everyone's on edge. No one knows anything at the moment. We don't know what happened. Everybody at the moment is very hysterical, very tired.

'People want answers and we're just not getting anywhere. I know today they have gone to the hospital as they said if you want you can bring a priest in. I don't think the baby is going to make it.'

She added that her niece was an 'absolute sweetheart' and that being a mum was 'all she dreamed about'.

In February, Miss Fauvrelle shared a picture of her ultrasound scan on Facebook with the caption: 'Happy Valentine's sweet pea…we can't wait to meet you.'

Other posts revealed she was a keen motorbike enthusiast and in March last year she passed her bus driving test 'with pretty much full marks' with Arriva London, who operate Transport for London's buses.

The company said she undertook bus driver training between February and June 2018 before leaving. 

Friend Aaleeah Knowles wrote: 'Kelly - you were a young woman with a business mind. You were genuine and real.

'I'm devastated to hear what happened to you. You didn't deserve this. You've touched my soul and my emotions are all over the place for you. You were amazingly intelligent and bright and I'm just devastated.'
