A report has said a Mevagissey fisherman might have survived his boat sinking if he had been wearing a lifejacket.

Ian Thomas's boat went down days before Christmas 2011.

Investigators say the Heather Anne was carrying twice as much fish as she was originally designed for.

Harbourmaster Hugh Bowles says the whole village was devastated: "It continues on and if you'd seen over Christmas the plaque that's on the harbour commemorating Ian with candles put around it and people had put drinks out there so yes, it was very much felt throughout the whole community.

"He was the first person to be lost at sea in sixty years from Mevagissey Harbour. The feeling around the harbour and the whole village community was one of real sort of shock and very much grief. It's a very close community."
