Padstow Speedboat Inquest Delivers Verdicts

(Updated 5:36am 12th November 2014)
An inquest delivers its verdicts into the deaths of a dad and his little girl in the Padstow speedboat tragedy.
Nick Milligan and eight year old Emily lost their lives when they were thrown from the water last year and then run down.
A hearing in Truro has delivered verdicts of 'accidental death.'
On Tuesday, a Naval expert told the inquest that sea trials had found the type of boat involved could roll violently when turned at speed.
He also said the boat was being pushed to "its extremes" when it happened.
Nick Milligan's wife Victoria was among those giving evidence at the two day hearing in Truro.
She admitted that not wearing the kill cord was "obviously, a big mistake."
She described feeling like "we hit a wall" and remembered her son saying "I want to go home."
Home Office pathologist, Dr Russell Delaney, told the inquest that 51 year old Nick died of a head injury and eight year old Emily died from multiple injuries.
Pirate FM understands the coroner has said she will push for a review into the level of training required to drive a powerboat.
