Ex-wife of victim reacts to his death

The former wife of millionaire Bristol jeweller Andrew Bush has spoken about his death.

45 year old Sam Mason has a 19 year old daughter, Ellie Mason-Bush with Andrew Bush

Sam says she heard of the incident when she received a panic-stricken phone call from her daughter who told her: "Mummy, daddy's dead".

I got a phone call from my daughter, Ellie, at about 8.30 on Saturday morning. She said mummy, daddy's dead.

I told her not to be silly, she was quite hysterical. She said daddy's dead, he's been shot.

I'm here (in Spain) to be here with my daughter, she's only 19 and now she is without a father. Ellie has been left without a dad - she's such a daddy's girl.

This whole thing is almost like a horror story, it's hard to believe it's happening. My husband wasn't even 50, he was 48.

At this moment in time the Spanish police aren't giving anything away.

– Sam Mason, ex-wife of Andrew Bush
