The family of a grandmother who was beheaded in Tenerife have paid tribute to the "generous support" they have received after the murder.
Jennifer Mills-Westley, 60, was killed in the popular holiday resort of Los Cristianos on the island on Friday.
In a statement the family thanked the police in Tenerife, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Victim Support and Missing Abroad.
They said: "Without the generous support and help we have received from these people we don't know how we would have got through to this stage. We can't thank them enough."
Ms Mills-Westley, originally from Norwich, Norfolk, was inside a Chinese-owned shop on Avenida Juan Carlos when she was stabbed and decapitated.
She had been living in Tenerife after retiring from her job as a road safety officer with Norfolk County Council.
A 28-year-old Bulgarian man called Deyan Deyanov was arrested on suspicion of killing her, and is now being held at a psychiatric unit.
Matt Searle from the charity Missing Abroad said: "This has been an awful time for the family.
"There has been intense media interest in the case and a degree of speculation.
"But this is not a time for speculation - it is a time for the family to grieve and come to terms with their loss."
