Tribute to murdered hotel worker

The family of a hotel receptionist found stabbed to death alongside a colleague have paid tribute to her.

Alice Adams and Tibor Vass, both 20, were discovered at a house in Harlington, west London, on Wednesday. They had died of multiple stab wounds.

Both Miss Adams, from Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, and Hungarian national Mr Vass, of Harlington, were receptionists at the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel.

In a statement, Miss Adams' family said: "Alice touched the hearts of everyone she ever met.

"Her capacity to spread love was unprecedented and her spirit will live on forever. We will be making no further comment to the press at this time."

Attila Ban, 31, a Hungarian national of New Road, Harlington, was remanded in custody when he appeared at West London Magistrates' Court on Saturday, charged with murdering the pair. He also worked as a receptionist at the hotel.

Ban was arrested in Harlington on Friday after receiving treatment for wrist and neck injuries at a west London hospital. He will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.

The address where Miss Adams and Mr Vass were found is near Heathrow airport and the property lies behind the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel and Convention Centre, with the rear gardens backing on to the hotel's secure gated car park.

A knife has been recovered from the scene, Scotland Yard said.
