Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 6:06am 5th August 2014

A man is questioned on suspicion of the manslaughter of one of Port Isaac's Fisherman's Friends.

He is being held by police over the deaths of Trevor Grills - and the sea shanty group's tour manager Paul McMullen.

It happened as they got ready to perform at venue G-Live in Guildford in February 2013.

A metal door weighing four and a half tonnes fell on the pair.

Paul died at the scene, while Trevor lost his fight for life in hospital two days later.

Now a fifty-five year old man from Shropshire has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence.

A spokesperson for Surrey Police said: "A 55-year-old man from the Bridgnorth area of Shropshire has been arrested today (Monday, 4 August) in connection with the investigation into the deaths of two men following an incident at the G Live theatre venue in Guildford last year.

"He was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence and is currently in custody."
