A jury is considering its verdict in the inquest into one of Ireland's worst marine tragedies.
Five family members died after a car plunged off a pier slipway into the water in Buncrana, Co Donegal, in March last year.
The panel is deliberating on whether to return a finding of accidental death or misadventure on 49-year-old driver Sean McGrotty. A post mortem found he was over the drink driving limit.
It is also weighing potential recommendations including a public safety campaign warning of the dangers; that manufacturer Audi publishes data on tests of vehicles flooded in water; that instructions on what to do be included in the car manual; that there be a window-breaking device sold with the vehicle; that warning signs be erected about the risk of algae on some slipways, and that gates be used.
Icy conditions will form in the evening and overnight.Read the full story ›
