AN INQUEST has been opened into the death of a Spanish holidaymaker from Wrexham.

Tomos Owen (Tom) Hughes, who had only turned 20 on May 21, died while on holiday in Magaluf on the island of Mallorca (Majorca) on Sunday, June 3.

John Gittins, senior coroner for North Wales East and Central, said the time and cause of death were both unknown at this stage, but a post-mortem examination had been carried by the Spanish authorities and the results of that examination would be used at the full inquest to determine a cause of death.

Mr Gittins said Mr Hughes had been identified through his passport and his family had confirmed he had fallen from a balcony in the popular holiday resort.

The inquest was adjourned until a date yet to be determined.

Former Rhosnesni High School pupil Mr Hughes was employed by Freedom Leisure and was “much loved” by his friends at Rhosnesni Activity and Leisure Centre and the other Freedom Leisure centres where he worked.

Last week, a spokesman for Freedom Leisure said: “Tom was very popular with other members of staff and customers and will be sadly missed by all.

"Everyone has been deeply saddened.

"Tom was a conscientious, reliable, endearing young man who was a very valued member of the team.

"Our thoughts are very much with Tom’s family, friends and colleagues at this extremely difficult time.”

Since a GoFundMe page was set up by his friends in his memory, more than £10,000 has been raised so far.
