A criminal investigation is to be carried out into the sinking of a Tarbert fishing boat in which two men died.

The Nancy Glen sank in Loch Fyne on the evening of January 18 this year, with the loss of skipper Duncan MacDougall and crewman Przemek Krawczyk.

After a widely-supported campaign and with Scottish Government help, the vessel was raised from a depth of 140 metres last month, allowing the remains of Mr MacDougall and Mr Krawczyk to be returned to their families and funerals to be held.

A spokesman for the Crown Office said on Tuesday: ‘The procurator fiscal has instructed Police Scotland to investigate the circumstances around the deaths of Duncan MacDougall and Przemek Krawczyk in Loch Fyne on January 18 2018.

‘The families will continue to be kept updated in relation to any significant developments.

‘As this is a live investigation, it would not be appropriate to comment further.’
