Compass FM produces The Price of Fish doc

Compass FM has created and produced a radio play called GY85 The Price of Fish based on the true story.

The plot revolves around the loss of a Grimsby trawler called the Laforey in 1954 which has been a topic of conversation amongst the local community.

North East Lincolnshire Councillor Clifford Barber attended the launch of the play last week at the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre. A permanent exhibition is now in place to educate people on the loss of the Laforey, bringing home the local aspect behind this story with the support of Compass FM.

Breakfast Show Presenter Joss Moore, who penned the play, has been locating and speaking with those involved or had family involved.

Richard Lyon, Programme Manager for Compass FM: “Making this drama involved the community coming together to get a tragic local story told in an authentic way.

“Our fishing heritage is very important to those in North East Lincolnshire and telling this tale really brought home the true price of fish.”

The Price of Fish is the second radio drama to feature on Compass FM in 2016, and will broadcast again on Thursday 11th February at 9pm on Compass FM.
