Depends what type of mathematics Masters you're looking at.
Taking Uni of Manchester as an example, they have different mathematics-related Masters courses, each with their own specific entry requirements. If you wanted to do the MSc in Mathematical Finance, then an Economics degree would meet the basic entry requirement as long as it contains specific mathematical elements http://www.maths.manchester.ac.uk/po...l-finance.html
However if you wanted to do their MSc in Applied Mathematics or Pure Mathematics & Mathematical Logic, then the Economics degree will probably not be helpful:
You probably need to do a little more resarch around what type of focus you want for your Masters. If you're going into a concentrated mathematics-based Masters, then it looks (from a quick scan of Manchester's website) like you need a heavily theoretical mathematics undergraduate background.
