BBC: Beheaded UK woman Jennifer Mills-Westley 'sought help'
The British woman stabbed and beheaded in a shop on the Spanish island of Tenerife had sought help minutes before the attack, reports suggest.
The Sunday Times reports that Jennifer Mills-Westley, 60, went into an employment centre, telling officials she was being followed.
After a man was sent away she went to a nearby shop, where she was attacked.
A Bulgarian man, 28, was arrested after the attack in Los Cristianos on Friday and is due in court on Monday.
The man had been detained by police several times for previous aggressive attacks.
Dominica Fernandez, of the Regional Interior Ministry, said the attack appeared to be random and that the suspect was well known in the area.
Regional newspaper La Opinion said the suspect had received treatment at the psychiatric unit of a local hospital in February after being involved in previous violent incidents.
