Lost trawlermen...

For twenty years the Lost Trawlermen's Service has taken place at the lock head at St Andrews Dock and commemorates the lives of the estimated 8,000 Hull trawlermen who perished at sea over the last 100 years. The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu threw in a little bit of politics today ("if we all had the spirit of fishermen we would conquer this recession. What would we do? We would conquer it!") and even led an unexpected - but wholly appropriate - round of applause for all those that headed out to sea.
