Spain: British Man Held Over Father's Death
A British tourist has been arrested on suspicion of killing his 69-year-old father during a fight at a holiday camp in a Spanish beach resort.
A security guard reportedly called police to the Castell Montgri camp in the village of L'Estartit near Girona after an argument broke out between the man, 45, and his father.
The man was named by Sky News sources as Ian Bennett, and his father as Douglas Bennett.
It is not thought any weapons were used in the lethal attack.
Police discovered the suspect's father lying on the ground with serious head injuries and he was taken to hospital where he died later.
A police spokesman said: "Officers from the Mossos d'Esqudra have arrested a 45-year-old British man in connection with the death of his 69-year-old father.
"The victim was taken by emergency services to hospital to be attended for the wounds he suffered, while local police in Torroella de Montgri arrested the alleged perpetrator for domestic violence.
"The victim died this morning and investigators from the Mossos d'Esquadra (Catalan regional police) took on the case."
A post-mortem examination is due to take place today to confirm the cause of death.
The Castell Montgri holiday camp is located at the foot of the Rocamaura mountain next to the town of L'Estartit in the Costa Brava region of northeast Spain. This resort is popular with British tourists during the holiday season.
