A 26-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a father-of-two in Gwynedd.

Henry Ayabowei, known as Henry Esin, was found collapsed near a Bangor nightclub in the early hours of Saturday.

The 27-year-old, from Llangefni, Anglesey, was taken to hospital, but died on Sunday morning.

A man who was arrested has now been charged and will appear before Llandudno magistrates on Wednesday.

Mr Ayabowei played football for a number of clubs on Anglesey and was described as a "true gentleman in every sense" by Llanfairpwll football club.

Floral tributes to Mr Ayabowei have been left outside the Peep nightclub, close to the Brick Street-High Street junction where he was found.

A post-mortem examination was also expected to be carried out on Tuesday, with family liaison officers supporting Mr Ayabowei's family.
