Fishing Safety Campaign
8:22am 13th February 2012
A south-east Cornwall MP who lost her husband at sea campaigns for safer clothing for fishermen.
It is after an inquest ruled Neil Murray's death was accidental.
The toggle on his hood got caught in nets.
Sheryll has been appointed to the Industry Safety Board and wants tops for protection, not fashion: "I've been very concerned about the way that commercial fishing clothing has become manufactured perhaps for the fashion market as well as working gear".
She has this message for fishermen: "Please cut toggles of drawstring tops if you have them. It's better to lose the drawstring than to lose your life".8:22am 13th February 2012
