Aquila crew deaths inquiry continues at Fort William
An inquiry into the capsizing of the dredger Aquila and the deaths of three of its crew has taken evidence on the second anniversary of the incident.
The vessel overturned near Kilmory, in Ardnamurchan, on 20 July 2009.
Skipper Tony Hayton, 45, died along with Peter Hilton and Thomas Sanderson, both aged 52. Tim Rowley, 33, also from Maryport, in Cumbria, survived.
A fatal accident inquiry (FAI) at Fort William Sheriff Court has been hearing evidence since the start of the year.
Sheriff Paul Crozier told the court on Wednesday that he would hear submissions from procurator fiscal Alison Wylie and lawyers representing the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and the Aquila's insurance company on 31 October.
