This is one of the graves of the drowned Morecambe Bay cocklers in China’s Fujian province.

Families of the 23 victims of the 2014 tragedy are still battling to come to terms with the death of loved ones, we can reveal today.

Gina Tan, a member of the Morecambe Chinese community, travelled out to the area, where she is from, taking food and visiting the grave – situated high up in the mountains and a long bus ride away for the family.
