Sea-Men Wanted

A postcard promoting a cruise under the slogan "More girls. More sun. More fun. There's nothing else a guy needs to know" has been labelled "sexist" in the inquest into the death of Dianne Brimble on board the Pacific Sky.

The postcard shows bikini-clad women with the catchphrase "Seamen wanted". On the back it carries a photo of the P&O-owned vessel. The card had "absolutely outraged" Mrs Brimble's family, their lawyer, James Stevens, told the court yesterday.

The inquest had previously heard about the inappropriate behaviour of some of a group of eight men towards women passengers on the cruise, the senior deputy state coroner Jacqueline Milledge said.
