Now park residents have set up a JustGiving page in his memory.

They hope to raise money for the young family he leaves behind.

The page says: “Weʼre raising £400 to help raise some money to support the young family left behind by the tragic loss of their father and partner.

“We all had some very devastating news on the park the other day. We all feel affected by what has happened.

“Absolutely heartbreaking. Please just donate what you can, every penny counts.”

The company that owns Lakeside Holiday Park near Chichester has expressed ‘deepest sympathies’ to Shane’s family.

A spokesman for site owner Park Holidays UK said: “Park Holidays UK extends its deepest sympathies to the family of the person who lost his life today at Lakeside Holiday Park, and to others personally affected by the tragedy.

“We will give every assistance possible to police enquiries into this incident.

“Swimming or bathing in the lakes at the park has never been permitted, and we have issued a further reminder to this effect to park guests and staff.”
