A mammoth search and rescue operation was launched with all local RNLI lifeboats in the area, dozens of other boats and fishing boats and coastguard helicopter. 

One man, Dave Bickerstaff was found clinging to a lifebuoy and recovered by the Newhaven RNLI Lifeboat while two fishermen remained missing.

On the evening of Monday, the 23rd divers recovered the body of 26-year-old Adam Harper.

The third fisherman Robert Morley, 38, is still missing.

I'm raising money in aid of the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen so they can distribute to help all those affected. 

Our prayers are with those directly involved and the wider community who all have been affected in some way.
