A British millionaire's former girlfriend has been arrested in connection with his murder on the Costa del Sol, Spanish police said.

Businessman Andrew Bush, 48, from Bristol, was found shot dead early on Saturday at a property near Estepona, west of Marbella.

Slovak national Mayka Marica Kukucova was detained in Slovakia on suspicion of a "consumed intentional homicide".

Arrangements for her extradition to Spain are still to be finalised.

A National Police spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that Mayka Marica Kukucova, born in 1990, was arrested early this afternoon in Slovakia after Spanish authorities requested a European arrest warrant.

"She is the ex-partner of Andrew Bush and has been arrested on suspicion of a consumed intentional homicide."
