It has taken years of campaigning and fund-raising, but finally a location for a permanent memorial to the six thousand trawlermen from Hull, who lost their lives at sea over the past century has been agreed.
Today, organisers met at the site next to the River Humber which will be a place for reflection and commemorative services. Sarah Clark reports.
St Andrew's Dock Heritage Park Action Group have signed a lease for a memorial to remember 6000 trawlermen from Hull who have lost their lives at sea. The memorial will be a place for quiet reflection and to hold commemoration services. £150,000 has been raised for the monument.
