The husband of a Cornish MP died at sea after a toggle on his hood got tangled up in his net, according to an official accident report.

Neil Murray was alone on the boat named after his son when he was pulled onto the rotating drum which hauls the net up and down, losing an arm and sustaining fatal injuries.

The fifty-seven year old, who was married to East Cornwall MP Sheryll Murray, had left Looe early on the morning of March 24th this year.

The vessel, Our Boy Andrew, was discovered after a big search and rescue operation. Lifeboat crews from Fowey found it drifting just before midnight.

The report said Mr Murray was well respected in the local fishing community and was known for having a positive attitude towards safety.

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch added that it would not be making fresh safety recommendations since the same safety issues had been addressed in an earlier report into the deaths of two other fishermen.
