The vessel sank 51 years ago, taking 20 lives.

Hull's Hessle Road has fallen silent to remember the crew of the St Romanus, who left the city never to return:

51 years ago today, it was the first of three vessels which were lost in Hull's Triple Trawler Disaster.

Its crew of 20 all perished when the trawler sank 110 miles off Spurn Point.

Tracey Stephens lost her uncle David Redfern, she says it's important to remember for their sake, and that if her mother was alive she'd have been there to remember her brother.
