It’s almost seven years since 23 Chinese cockle pickers working for a gangmaster were swept out to sea and drowned in Morecambe Bay. An investigation found that they had not been equipped or prepared for the conditions they were working in. The gangmaster was found guilty of 21 counts of manslaughter. Only 21 counts, because two bodies were never found.
