A man has been found guilty of decapitating a 60-year-old British grandmother in a Tenerife supermarket.

Deyan Deyanov, 29, who has a mental health condition, had denied murdering Jennifer Mills-Westley in May 2011.

He faces 15 to 20 years in a psychiatric unit after being convicted by a jury in court in Santa Cruz.

In a joint statement following the verdict, Ms Mills-Westley's daughters, Sarah and Sam, said lessons needed to be learned.

"It is clear to us that there has been a catalogue of failings; unfortunately it is now left to us to piece these together as we still have so many unanswered questions," it said.
