Newhaven Fishing Disaster

Despite some further attempts made on Monday 23rd November to locate the missing men from the stricken ” Joanna C ” fishing vessel, no trace has been found of the two missing crew members.

All members of the crew have now been named.

The two missing men are Rob Morley and Adam Harper. The crew member who was rescued and found clinging to a lifebouy is named as Dave Bickerstaff. He remains in hospital suffering from severe hypothermia.

A GoFundMe page, set up on Saturday evening, is raising funds for the distressed families.

Sarah Cook, the organiser of the page, said: “All three men have families who are now being comforted by those in the fishing community.
