Harvester owner on death rap.

THE owner of the sunken trawler Solway Harvester appeared in court yesterday charged with manslaughter.

Richard Gidney, 38, was called to the High Bailiffs Court in Douglas, Isle of Man, in connection with the loss of the seven-man Wigtownshire crew in January 2000.

Gidney, of Jack Robinson (Trawlers) Ltd, appeared alongside Ranger skipper Douglas White, 43, who faces a charge of illegally trawling over the wreck of the Harvester [ETH] which carries a maximum two-year sentence.

They were committed to the Court of General Jaol, the equivalent of ScotlandOs High Court. No pleas were entered and no trial date has been set.
