Elderly man trapped and drowned in fatal pier fall

Argyll and Bute Council was today fined £20,000 after a man died when he drove over an unprotected edge of a car park at Coal Pier in Dunoon.

Duncan MacGillivray, 75 of Dunoon, drowned on 17 September 2007, when it is believed that he accidentally put his car into forward gear rather than reverse to exit a parking bay. The vehicle mounted the edging, and, as there was no protective barrier, the car fell approximately three metres into the sea below.
