Lincolnshire Police Chief Inspector Phil Vickers reassured the public that the incident was “unprecedented” in Sleaford. In an interview with the BBC he said: “Sleaford is a safe place to live and this type of incident is unprecedented here.

“The impact was enormous. Both adults were key members of the community, well known and well liked.”

Earlier this week, tributes were paid to Diana Gabaliene by the Sleaford Fight Academy, of which she was a member.

A social media post from the club urged people not to speculate about the tragedy.

The tribute post spoke of the ‘shy girl who asked a member of staff if she could join us because she was too scared to approach us herself’: He said: ‘We are devastated to to learn that one of the victims was one of us.

“She fell in love with the sport and became one of our hardest working students.

“Her confidence grew and she became an important part of the club and even represented the ring last December.

“She leaves us with a huge hole in the heart of this club,”
