Campaign success: Support for fishermen affected by storms

Posted on: 6th March 2014

Local MP, Andrew George, who involved the Deputy Prime Minister in his campaign to ensure that Cornish fishermen affected by the storms would receive some Government help, has welcomed a Govt announcement that a fund has now been set up and other support is available.

Mr George said, “This is a good start but there are now boats in places like Porthleven which are having difficulties securing insurance because of the perceived risks. I urge all those who believe they may have been affected to seek help when approaching the MMO”
