A British judicial inquiry Friday blamed last winter's North Sea ferry accident that claimed 188 lives on corporate sloppiness on the part of the ship's owner and crew negligence. After the three-month inquiry, Justice Barry Sheen concluded that the March 6 capsizing of the Herald of Free Enterprise car ferry off the Belgian coast was the fault of management of Townsend Thoresen Ltd.. "From top to bottom, the corporate management was affected by the disease of sloppiness," the judge said.
