Charlie Toogood, the RNLI volunteer who leapt aboard the out-of-control speedboat to stop its engine, has issued this statement:
There were many "heroes" in this tragic incident, all of whom did a remarkable job in difficult circumstances. However, now is a time to solely reflect on the bereaved and injured family members and their wider family and friends. My thoughts are with them all and will be for a long time to come. I have nothing more to add and would hope that our community can now be left to deal with this tragedy in own own way and in peace and quiet.
