North Wales Police said on Monday: “Following an incident at Ty Mawr Holiday Park, Towyn on Saturday afternoon, 19-year-old Matthew Selby from the Greater Manchester area has this afternoon been charged with murder.

“He has been remanded in custody and will appear before magistrates tomorrow.

“We would ask the public not to speculate about this incident on social media as this is an active investigation.”

A park spokesperson said previously: “We are shocked and saddened by this tragic incident.

“Ty Mawr is a 100 acre family park which welcomes tens of thousands of happy holidays makers every year.”

Police officers, along with three rapid response vehicles, two ambulances and the air ambulance, were called to the holiday park on the afternoon of July 31.

The A548, which runs alongside the holiday park, was temporarily closed to allow the air ambulance to land, sparking long delays on surrounding roads.

Police urged people to stay away from the scene but later said it was a “tragic but isolated incident”.
