A British man has been questioned by a Spanish judge on suspicion of killing his father, from Somerset, in a fight and released on bail.
Ian Bennett, 45, was arrested on Friday in L'Estartit, a seaside town on north-east Spain's Costa Brava, after allegedly attacking his father, 69-year-old Douglas Bennett, while on holiday at a camping site.
Police said he had been taken before a judge and bailed while the investigation continues.
Mr Bennett senior was taken to hospital in Girona with severe head wounds after he was found in a pool of blood but died on Friday morning.
"Doug and Ian were so close it was unreal. I have no idea what could have sparked this. I'm absolutely speechless."

All we know is Doug is dead and Ian has been arrested. I'm stunned."
A British man is being questioned on suspicion of killing his father in a fight while on holiday at a Spanish camping site.
The 45-year-old, named in reports as Ian Bennett, was arrested on Friday in L'Estartit, a seaside town on north-east Spain's Costa Brava, after allegedly attacking his father, named as Douglas Bennett, 69 from Chard in Somerset.
His brother Bob told The Mail on Sunday: "Doug and Ian were so close it was unreal. I have no idea what could have sparked this. I'm absolutely speechless."
"I don't know whether it might be relevant or not but Ian was very ill about 20 years ago when he had some sort of mental breakdown."
The family of a woman who was murdered are setting up a charity to help people who've gone through similar tragedies. Catherine Wells Burr was just 23 when her body was found in a burning car in Ashill last year.
Her boyfriend along with two other Polish nationals were convicted of her murder in June. Our Somerset correspondent David Woodland reports.
