I've just listened to his eye witness account, quite horrific.

It goes without saying my thoughts are with the womans family.  :(

Good God, I read the article and it said she'd been stabbed, but watching Elle's link it's obviously far more horrific!!

I know those shops really well too, we used to stay near there before we got the right island.

What absolute horror for everyone involved.

Yeah - the global news seems to be playing it down a bit. Decapitation is a bit more extreme than a stabbing. Both fatal... but you get my point.

Glad they got the nutjob!

Steve - she was an English lady who lived there... according to local police - but nobody knows yet how she was connected to the man or the shop, if at all.

When my son came home with his girlfriend last night she asked me if I'd heard about what had happened in Tenerife. She said that her relative had witnessed it and had told them how horrific it had been so I showed her the video on the top of this thread. Her name is ###### Kirby and it was only her relative Colin Kirby that was on the video.

As CG says, R.I.P.
