The fisherman husband of South East Cornwall MP Sheryll Murray was crushed to death when a toggle from his oilskin hooded jacket got caught in machinery as he was winching in his catch. He suffered the fatal injuries when his jacket became embedded in a hydraulic net drum. He had been fishing alone on his 10 metre vessel 'Our Boy Andrew', named after his son, when the accident happened in March 2011.
