Almost £9,000 is being donated to the families of the fishermen who died after their boat sank in the Western Isles. An online fund was set up just 3-days-ago after 29-year-old Martin Johnstone from Halkirk lost his life. Chris Morrison, who's 27 and from Stornoway also died. Meanwhile 42-year-old Paul Alliston - who's from Lewis - remains missing at sea. A woman from near Thurso - who knows one of the owners of the boat which sank - has started a crowdfunding page online.
