...and Devon to hold a public enquiry
Devon County Council have just repeated that they will hold a public enquiry into the circumstances surrounding the Napoli incident. This is very welcome bearing in mind that our useless government won't be having one. But that runs to form; back in 2001 after the foot and mouth crisis it was again down to Devon to do the necessary, the government not wanting to risk criticism of their ineptitude in that particular situation. It seems that the Devon enquiry will be looking at the seaworthiness or otherwise of the Napoli, something I'm very pleased about.
