Fate Of Solway Harvester Discussed

The fate of the Sowlay harvester has also been discussed in Tynwald today.

The House of keys has been told that vessel is no longer required by the courts now the inquests into the deaths of the seven men on board have been concluded.

It still belongs to a company which the boats owner Richard Gidney- who was acquitted of manslaughter – is still a shareholder of.

The Department of Tourism has written to him for a decision on what to do with the wreck – if he hasn’t replied by the end of this month it will be scrapped at Ramsey Shipyard.
