Did dredger collide with Shoreham fishing boat?

A public appeal has been launched to help the families of the fishermen who were lost when their boat collided with a much larger vessel off the coast of Sussex.

Marine accident investigators believe the bigger ship was a scallop dredger which left Shoreham Harbour the same night.

Only one of the four fishermen is thought to have survived. Police have now formally identified a body recovered from the sea, as Malcolm Shaw reports.
