Memorial service for trawlermen

Some of the 6000 trawlermen lost at sea

An open air memorial service in honour of Hull's lost trawlermen will be held today outside the Sailmaker's Arms in St Andrew's Quay.

The service will begin at noon, then family and friends of those who have perished will cast wreaths in to the river.

There will then be a complimentary buffet at the Alexandra Hotel on Hessle Road.
