Emotional tribute to Devon fishermen lost at sea

A service has been held in a Devon fishing port to remember the lives of fishermen lost at sea. The tribute in Brixham, organised by the charity Fishermen’s Mission, saw the names of those who have died in Devon waters read out to ensure they are not forgotten. The charity collated a list of 158 names dating back to the Great Gale of Brixham in 1866. The names will be added to a memorial book to be kept at All Saints Church. Helen Lovell-Smith, from the charity, said she began collating names after a conversation with a grieving mother. >click to read< 08:15
