In 2004, twenty-three people lost their lives at Morecambe Bay. These were undocumented and exploited labourers trafficked from southern China, who knew very little of the local geography and, failing to heed the warning signs, became trapped by the incoming tide. Caught miles off the shore in the pitch black of night, surrounded by rising water and dangerous quicksand, all but one of them drowned. Of the twenty-four people that went out onto the bay that night, only one was rescued. Twenty-one bodies were recovered from the water. Two of them could not be found.
