Skipper jailed for 10 months for theft of Mallaig fishing boat

A SKIPPER has been jailed for 10 months for stealing a fishing boat belonging to Islay Crab Exports and fraudulently using one of the company’s credit cards.

But 37-year-old skipper Christopher Brown said during his trial at Campbeltown Sheriff Court that he had acted out of desperation. He said: ‘No person in this world works for seven weeks for nothing.’
