TRIBUTES have flooded in after a man from Colchester died following an incident at a holiday park.

Paul Gladwell was enjoying a family holiday at Pontins when a series of incidents ended with his death.

Chariece Rogers, his partner Carrie’s sister who has set up a crowdfunding page for the family, said: “No amount of money will ever bring Paul back and no amount of money would ever seal my sister and nephews broken hearts.

“But I have taken it upon myself to raise as much money to support Carrie with anything she needs and anything my nephews need.

“Paul grew his wings and flew off to the angels.

“No matter what he will always remain a part of our thoughts and lives.”

On Tuesday it is alleged the Asperger’s Syndrome sufferer got into an altercation with another parent.

It is alleged he was pinned down by security guards. Police were called and he was arrested.

While police officers were taking him to the station, they noticed he was unwell and called an ambulance.

He was taken to hospital but died on Thursday morning.

Two investigations have now been launched.

One is into the actions of security guards and what happened before police arrived.

The other will look into the events after he was in police custody.

Friends have left flowers for the 38-year-old at his Magdalen Green home in Colchester and a host of tributes have been taped to the window.

Many have taken to social media to share memories.

Bex Seeley, said: “I have known Paul for 25 years, lost touch over the last couple of years but I am truly gutted, a man with a huge character.

Stacey Nial said: “Thinking of you and the boys Carrie. Cannot believe this has really happened he was a diamond of a bloke and will be missed by all.”

Candice Baker said: “RIP Paul you were always such a gent, Thinking of Carrie and your children.”
