Tributes have been paid to a mother who left an emotional Valentine's Day card to her five children just days before she was found dead on a beach.

According to Daily Mail, Lisa Williams, who was 31, sent the card telling her children that she "loves them with all her heart", before she was found dead at Newry beach in Wales.

It's understood that Williams was heartbroken after losing contact with her children.

Loved ones have since left floral tributes to her close to the spot where she was found.

One bouquet, which appeared to have been left by her father, read: "Our Lisa Bach. You'll always be in our heart. Love you forever Dad and Rachel xxx."

The mother, who had recently separated from her husband, had posted the card on February 12, so that it would reach her "famous five" in time for Valentine's Day.

Enclosed with the heartfelt message to her family were five of their favourite chocolate bars and a necklace for her daughter, accompanied by a note that read: "for when you are older."

Less than an hour before her death, she had also shared a picture of the package on her Facebook page.

Williams, from Llanfaethlu, wrote: "I love you all with my Welsh heart, lovely Welsh (parcel), Valentine's treats and chocolate treats.

"Will see you all soon I promise. Kind hands, kind feet, nice words and sharing is caring."

Another message in a floral tribute described Williams as kind with a cute smile.

It read: "It's a big loss without you here with us all. Hard to believe that you're gone. You meant the world to us. I'll never forget that cute smile and how kind you were to us all.

"There were a lot more things we wanted to do with you but you're in a better place now. Love you forever Lisa. Gone too soon."

Dozens of messages from heartbroken family and friends have also been posted on Facebook.

One wrote: "Your mam loved you and your brothers and sister so much ... I'm sure u all know that. Your mam was also so proud of u five. My heart goes out 2 u little one's."

Another said: "Your mam adored the bones off yous all, such kind and caring woman, she'll always be with you no matter what."

One of her children wrote simply: "Love u mam and miss u."

Williams' body was found by a security guard from Holyhead port in a shelter close to the beachon Monday.

Police have said the death is not suspicious, but it is believed formal identification is yet to take place.

It is understood an inquest is to be opened soon.

A spokesman for North Wales Police said: "At approximately 10.50pm (GMT) yesterday, Sunday 12 February 2017, emergency services were alerted to the discovery of a woman's body on Newry Beach, Holyhead.

"She was pronounced dead at the scene and whilst no formal identification has taken place officers believe she is a local woman and enquiries are underway to locate and inform her next of kin.

"At this time the death is not being treated as suspicious, and the coroner for north-west Wales has been informed."

District Inspector Jason Higgins, at Llangefni Police Station, added: "The lady, who we believe to be local, was pronounced dead at the scene and we are now in the process of locating and informing her family.

"Our thoughts are with them at this very difficult time."
