Fishermen statue unveiled in town
The statue was designed by Trevor Harries
A memorial statue dedicated to all fishermen lost at sea has been unveiled in North East Lincolnshire.

The bronze statue, depicting fishermen hauling a net over the side of a boat, will stand in St James' Square near Grimsby parish church.

It was commissioned by the Fisherman's Memorial Trust but residents and businesses raised 60,000 for it.

Artist Trevor Harries designed the statue which was unveiled after a short dedication service.
