Fisherman who lost four pals in trawler tragedy returns to water as lifeboatman

A fisherman left devastated when four colleagues died in a trawler tragedy is returning to the sea as a lifeboatman. Tam Fyall, 59, is now deputy second coxswain at Anstruther lifeboat station in Fife after battling post-­traumatic stress disorder. The appointment marks a remarkable turnaround after the Meridian disaster in 2006 left him too distressed to leave shore. The accident claimed the lives of Fifers Martin Gardner, 49, Edward Gardner, 50, Ian Donald, 55, and Sidney Low, 52, from Aberdeen. Only Edward’s body has been found. Tam said he would never forget his lost friends but he was sure they would approve of his new role with the RNLI. >click to read<11:46
