A service has been held in North Shields to remember 36 men who died when a trawler sank off the coast of Norway during a storm 41 years ago.


The Gaul had a crew made up of men from Hull and North Shields on board when it went down on 8 February 1974, but only four bodies were ever found.


Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell MP joined relatives and friends of those who died who had travelled to Tyneside for a special service of remembrance.


Alan Campbell MP “The loss of the Gaul was a tragedy to so many it was important to mark the occasion in what was a deeply moving service.”
