A Cornish MP has warned changing the law to protect fishing crews could end up forcing them out of business.

Sheryll Murray lost her husband in a trawler accident.

Earlier this week a south west fisherman was drowned off the Devon coast.

The south east Cornwall politician tells the Westcountry Tonight crews know the dangers. She said: "I don't think you can ever say that you're going to make the fishing industry one hundred percent safe. It is the most dangerous industry, even more dangerous than mining and you will never, ever be able to compensate for every accident.

"No fisherman goes to sea deliberately putting themselves at risk. If you legislate, then it's going to put an economic burden on an already economically vulnerable industry."
