Does anyone remember the details of this terrible incident that happened in the early 1990s ?

There was a group of new age travellers camped out at Deeside somewhere near Deeside Industrial Park and Sealand Ranges.

A group of youngsters from Wirral visited them in a car. An altercation of some sort took place and at least one of the youngsters was brutally murdered.

I would be grateful for any further information. Thanks.

Thanks kimpri1, that's the case. I was told at the time that this particular group of travellers had previously been at Leasowe or Moreton Common. Did they ever get to the bottom of what actually happened ?

I visited the camp at Moreton common every night,I never seen them cause any problems there. Always a good atmosphere and plenty of free entertainment.

If you bother to click on the link supplied by kimpri1
you will read this..
Last year, the East Clwyd coroner recorded a verdict of unlawful killing of all five men.

Is that classed as an accident?

IIRC the travellers were gathered around the car singing "burn you b******s burn" when the fire brigade turned up. Not a nice incident.
