Morecambe Bay Cockling Tragedy: Chinese cocklers at work - VIDEO

Waiting for Video...
 

In the height of the cockling frenzy up to 500 people would descend on the shores of the bay to collect the cockles.

People of all nationalities including Polish, Chinese and English would head out with rakes, buckets and netting to work in groups to rake cockles from the muddy sands.
