Hospital care 'shortcomings' before Tenerife beheading

There were "clear shortcomings" in the care a man with paranoid schizophrenia received in hospital months before he beheaded a woman in Tenerife.

Deyan Deyanov murdered Jennifer Mills-Westley, from Norwich, seven months after leaving a north Wales hospital.

A Healthcare Inspectorate Wales report said without the shortcomings in his care, Deyanov, 22, might not have murdered Mrs Mills-Westley, 60.

The victim's family said the "failings are far worse than we imagined".

Matthew Richards reports.
