A British healthcare manager celebrating her birthday on holiday in Turkey was allegedly shot dead by her gardener in an attack that also left her son and elderly mother injured.

Anne Bury's luxury villa on the country's idyllic south coast was turned into a bloodbath as the gunman chased her up three flights of stairs before firing at her four times.

The alleged killer had been arrested just days earlier on suspicion of making death threats to the British holidaymaker but was released.

The Turkish authorities are investigating local rumours that the 46-year-old gardener had been in a relationship with Ms Bury, a former midwife who was also a qualified barrister. (©Daily Telegraph, London)
