Family and friends of a 22-year-old father who tragically died at Primrose Valley are raising funds to “give him the send off he truly deserves”.

“Amazing father” Ryan Vincent died following an incident at the holiday park on May 22.

In a statement, Ryan’s family said: “Words cannot express the level of grief and loss we as a family feel. Ryan was very much loved and will be so missed by his family and friends. He was a very family orientated man and an amazing father, partner, son and brother. He loved life and lived it to the full.”

Family and friends have now set up a JustGiving page to try and raise £3,500 to help give the Skelton father a send off.

A story on the page reads: “Ryan Vincent has sadly lost his life in the most tragic way you could ever imagine on a family holiday at Primrose Valley.

“He was the most amazing, caring and loving father you could imagine. Not only was he a dad but he was a step dad.

“This tragic event has torn many hearts. Vinnie was a son, a brother, a partner and a father. He was loved and forever will be loved by all. We are trying to raise enough money to give him the most beautiful send off he deserves. As this was such an unexpected event we need help doing so.”

It added: “Any donation is welcome, it doesn’t matter how small, it will help us reach our goal and give Vinnie that beautiful send off .”

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter in connection with Mr Vincent’s death and have been released on bail as inquiries continue.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, at about 11.30pm on Monday, May 22, and has not already spoken to the police, is asked to call 101, select option 2 and ask for Scarborough Serious Crime Team quoting reference number 12170088431.
