46-year old mother-of-five dies mysteriously in her sleep after complaining of a swollen leg.

Debbie Vaughan, 46, passed away suddenly at her home in Flintshire, England.

Her family said she had visited a doctor the day before she died and had been complaining of a swollen leg.

The cause of Mrs Vaughan's death is not yet known - and her family are waiting the post-mortem examination results.

A candlelit vigil will be held outside tonight in her honour and is expected to be attended by hundreds as they pay their respects.

Her daughter Chloe, 25, described her mother a 'bubbly' woman who will be deeply missed.

'Mum was such a lovely, bubbly person who loved to spend time with her family. She loved going on day trips and to the bingo with friends,' she said.

Friend Dawn Evans said she had known the former Flint High pupil since their school days.

She said: 'Her husband and family were her world.

She was a beautiful lady and I'll miss her more than anything. I just can't believe it, no one can.'

A swollen leg can be a sign of a number of health conditions, including deep vein thrombosis.

DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in one or more of the deep veins in the body, usually in the legs.
