A man whose father was never recovered from the Piper Alpha disaster has criticised an "unthinkable" lack of consultation on plans to revamp the memorial gardens.
Shane Gorman's father lost his life in the Piper Alpha disaster (read his story here). He is warning of the need for an"inside-out" safety approach.
In the Piper Alpha Memorial Garden in Aberdeen there is a statue of three offshore workers to represent the 167 men killed on July 6, 1988. Two sons – one who lost his father in the tragedy and the other whose father came back – tell how it changed their lives.
The reality of the devastating impact a major Incident has on friends and families, and the vast reach it has into the community and into the future is immeasurable.
