Morecambe Bay Cockling Tragedy: Cockling ship - VIDEO

Waiting for Video...
 

This exclusive footage is of the cockling ship which travelled to Morecambe Bay in November 2002.

The boat was allowed to use the bay after cockle beds on the Dee Estuary were closed.

Around £20,000 worth of cockles were picked from the beds every day and most were shipped out by the boat to Heysham Harbour and then on to processing plants in the UK and abroad.
