An inquest rules the death of a Cornish MP's husband at sea was accidental.

Neil Murray never came home after going fishing in a boat named after his son.

An official report concluded the 57 year old had died after the toggle on his hood got caught in nets.

His wife Sheryll is now leading a safety campaign.

The South East Cornwall MP wants similar vessels to have an emergency stop button fitted.

Some of the cost of that will be met by Europe.
