Regional daily marks 50 years of tragedy with special edition

Hull Daily Mail, which is published from Yorkshire and acclaimed to be the largest circulated in the region, has marked 50 years since a triple tragedy on its patch with a special print edition. The daily covered half a century since the ‘triple trawler’ tragedies, in which three fishing boats sank within weeks of each other during the winter of 1968. A total of 58 men lost their lives, and Hull Daily Mail spoke to the relatives of those who died, as well as the last surviving member of the ‘Headscarf Revolutionaries’ – a group set up in the disasters’ wake to campaign for better protection for those working in the fishing industry.
