The family of a British mother who died after being doused with a flammable substance and set alight as she lay in bed in Barbados say they are “shocked and devastated” by her death.

Luton-born Natalie Crichlow, 44, was visiting family in the West Indies when she was attacked by an unknown intruder in a bedroom.

The mother-of-three, who had survived cancer twice and had two strokes in the past decade, was on a trip to help look after her disabled brother when she was attacked at his home in Christ Church on July 28.

Ms Crichlow suffered 75% burns to her body but died in hospital on August 6, the family say.

Her niece Ashley Best told PA: “The intruder broke in the house, then strangled her and then set her alight.

“I do not understand why it happened and we are all in a state of shock.

“She went into hospital and died of her injuries.
