A man has been charged with murder following a disturbance in Bangor.

Dean Skillin (20) from Caernarfon died in hospital shortly after the alleged attack near the Waverley Hotel on Saturday night (19th September).

His family have described him as a ”happy go lucky, caring person”.

24 year-old Brandon Sillence from Bangor is due to appear before Llandudno magistrates on Wednesday morning, accused of murdering Mr Skillin and assaulting another man.

But homicide detectives say they’re still trying to establish the sequence of events which led to the death.

Paying tribute in a statement, Mr Skillin’s family said: ”Dean was…a much loved son and brother. He loved life and lived it to the full. He loved his whole family and we were all very proud of him.”

”We will miss him terribly, however Dean, will always be in our hearts and we pray that no other family will have to face such suffering.”


Detective Inspector Jon Russell from North Wales Police said: ”We are continuing to appeal for information from anyone who may have witnessed the incident at around 10.30pm on Saturday night, in the area of the Waverley Hotel on Station Road in Bangor.”

”Despite an individual being charged with murder, we will continue to provide community reassurance in the area.”

”Detectives from the investigation team will also continue to conduct inquires locally and I’d reiterate my appeal that should anyone have any information that will help us fully understand the sequence of events…I’d ask they contact police.”

Anyone with information should contact Bangor police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting reference no. Y139039. Alternatively, contact the live web chat on the North Wales Police website.
