Seventh person arrested after man dies at Camber Sands resort

A SEVENTH person has been arrested after a man died at a holiday park bar.

Police said there was a “dispute” between a group of people at Parkdean Resorts on Lydd Road, Camber Sands, near Rye on Friday night.

Emergency services were called just before 11pm but a 53-year-old man, now identified as Michael McDonagh of London, was pronounced dead at the scene just after midnight.

The row happened at The Showbar, the resort’s entertainment site, which was showing the opening game of the Premier League as Arsenal played Crystal Palace.

Detective Chief Inspector Emma Vickers said: “My condolences go out to Michael’s family following the tragic events of Friday night.

“A complex and rapid investigation is underway to determine exactly what happened and identify those responsible.

“I understand that incidents like this can have a profound impact on the wider community and I want to reassure that this was an isolated case and we are working tirelessly to find out the full circumstances.

“Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that may assist the investigation is asked to contact police online via the Sussex Police website or by telephone on 101 quoting Operation Molton.”

Six people were initially arrested on suspicion of murder and have now been released on conditional bail.
The seventh person, also arrested on suspicion of murder, remains in custody.

A £100 refund was offered to guests of the park as some services were unavailable based on research on the website.
