Fisherman who fell overboard was 'not wearing life jacket'

A Ukrainian fisherman swept overboard to his death off the NI coast was not wearing a life jacket and had false papers, a report has said.

Nikolai Nedoliz, 35, was in the UK under a false name when the accident happened last year.

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch blamed the accident on the unsafe practice of crew standing on the top rail at the back of the ship.

BBC Newsline's Donna Traynor spoke to Mike Travis from the Marine Accident Investigation Branch.
