Two men have been charged with manslaughter after a teenager was shot dead in the car park of a Gwynedd pub.

Peter Colwell, 18, died after the incident at the Ship Inn, Llanbedrog, on 5 February.

Four defendants previously denied firearms charges.

Prosecutors have reviewed the case and have now charged Ben Fitzsimmons, 22, of Pwllheli and Ben Wilson, 28, of Ely, Cambridgeshire, with manslaughter.

Mr Fitzsimmons is also charged with possessing a loaded shotgun, while Mr Wilson faces five firearms certificate charges.

Two other defendants are charged with possessing a loaded shotgun in a public place.

No pleas were entered at Mold Crown Court and all four were bailed by Judge Rhys Rowlands until their trial in May.
