Man charged over Briton's death

A man has been charged with a fatal attack on a Briton who was beaten up while on holiday in Magaluf, police in the resort said today.

Anthony Charnock, a 44-year-old plumber from Immingham, north-east Lincolnshire, was reportedly hit on the head with a baseball bat during a fight with a number of local men.

He was admitted to hospital on August 29, and died on September 2.

Four people were arrested, one of whom remains in custody and is accused of attacking Mr Charnock, a Majorca police spokeswoman said. The other three have been released.

In a tribute on the Grimsby Telegraph website, his sister Ann Charnock said: "My twin Tony, my side is so empty without you being here. My heart is broken. My arms can't hold you again, but with all the memories and laughter we shared, you will live in my heart forever and ever. Love, your little sis."

The fight in which Mr Charnock was fatally injured took place in the car park of the three-star Fiesta Jungla hotel where he was staying.
