The 35-year-old British bouncer and 37-year-old Spaniard, who were arrested in connection with the death of Northern Irish holidaymaker Aaron Henderson in Magalluf, have both refused to make statements to the police and will appear in court in Palma this morning.

Briton Paul L.W. from Middlesbrough stands accused of fatal aggression while the Spanish is facing charges of retaining important information.

Investigators have managed to ascertain that the victim had an argument with a member of the bar staff in Mulligans pub on the calle Punta Ballena, where both the accused work. After the brief and non-violent exchange of words, Mr Henderson left the pub.

It would appear that Paul L.W. followed him and allegedly punched Mr Henderson, who suffered a severe blow to the back of his head after falling to the floor.

Paul L.W. was the first to be detained by the Guardia Civil. His colleague was then arrested after apparently lying to the Guardia Civil when questioned.

In the meantime, Mr Henderson's family are still waiting for the body to be repatriated to Northern Ireland.

Martin Jefferson, I totally agree! These papers only want to sensationalise these types of stories. Paul is the bar manager not a doorman. My thoughts go out to the victims family but let's not start "waterboarding" folk just yet.

There are 2 sides to every story, I know Paul and this is definitely not like him at all, also he was not a bouncer/doorman but the manager. I worked in Magalluf for 24 years and know how difficult it can be dealing with aggressive customers. Wait until the story has been unfolded properly before condemning, there must be loads of witnesses and as far as I can see reading all the reports is the guy carried on partying that night after the incident and was left alone by his girlfriend who had gone back to the hotel.

This bloke is clearly a coward, that's why he won't make a statement, I also agree with John not all but a lot of doormen in Magaluf are thugs, nothing else to describe them.

Good doormen surpress aggression, the doormen in magaluf are thugs in a position which allows them to carry out their thuggery.
