Responding to the publication of the Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) report into the December 2017 fire at Cameron House Hotel, West Dunbartonshire’s MP Martin Docherty-Hughes said:

“My thoughts have been with the families of the two young men who lost their lives in this terrible fire.

“Five years on from the tragic deaths of Simon Midgley and Richard Dyson, the publication of the Fatal Accident Inquiry must ensure lessons are learned.

“The Scottish Government’s commitment to strengthening national fire safety standards is welcome, following the important recommendations published in the sheriff’s report.

“This has been a difficult period for everyone affected by this tragedy. I hope the families finally have the answers they need.”


The full report and FAI determination made by Sheriff Thomas McCartney is available on the Scottish Courts & Tribunals website:
