VOL­UN­TEERS GO ON PA­TROL WITH PO­LICE AND EA

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

KEVIN Pear­son, the Trust’s re­gional en­force­ment man­ager in the Mid­lands, to­gether with a team of vol­un­teer bailiffs, took part in joint pa­trols on wa­ter­ways in Not­ting­hamshire re­cently to crack down on il­le­gal fish­ing.

They joined the county’s po­lice and En­vi­ron­ment Agency fish­eries staff to check out those fish­ing a num­ber of pools and stretches of the River Trent from Gun­thorpe and East Bridg­ford to Ne­wark-on-Trent.

Of more than 30 an­glers checked on the day, two were re­ported for not hav­ing a rod li­cence, one per­son was ar­rested for ob­struct­ing the po­lice, and two un­taxed and unin­sured ve­hi­cles were seized and towed away.
