Fishermen inquest to open later

Fri, 02 Aug 2013

The inquests into the death of two fishermen who died at sea will be opened today.

Stewart Curphey from Andreas and Harold Faragher from Bride died during a fishing trip last weekend.

The men, who were both 66, failed to return after an angling trip to Blue Point on the North West coast on Friday.

It sparked a huge search operation which involved the lifeboats and air support from RAF Valley.

Their upturned boat was discovered in the water on Saturday morning and their bodies were recovered later that day.

The Coroner of Inquests will start proceedings at 3.30pm at Douglas Courthouse.
