Cornish MP Demands Apology Over Report Into Husband's Death

A Cornish MP demands a public apology over an official report into her husband's death.

Sheryll Murray says the Marine Accident Investigation Branch has published it early and calls it 'sensationalised'

Fisherman Neil died in an accident, after his coat toggle got caught in nets.

In a statement Sheryll says, "I am very disappointed that amendments to the report, which were agreed between myself and the MAIB, were not put in place and that the original report has been published by many news outlets."
"The original report 'sensationalised' - their word, not mine - the accident in the hope they could get more press coverage for the work they have done."
"In my mind, to sensationalise is not the work of government departments, especially when it is a report into someone's death and people who cared deeply for the deceased are involved.  I have asked for a public apology and assurance that this will not happen again."
