Good that bailiffs are now get­ting back-up

Angling Times (UK) - - TACKLE NEWS -

I HAVE al­ways felt that En­vi­ron­ment Agency bailiffs worked hard to stop rod li­cence dodgers but that they faced an im­pos­si­ble task due to the amount of ground they needed to cover.

There are lit­er­ally thou­sands of fish­eries in the UK and the small num­ber of EA bailiffs can’t pos­si­bly visit ev­ery one.

They clearly needed sup­port, and it is great to see they are now get­ting it from the Vol­un­tary Bailiff Ser­vice and the po­lice.

Look­ing at the amount of money raised from rod li­cence eva­sion fines in the last two years, the new and ex­panded ap­proach def­i­nitely seems to be work­ing well. Mal­colm Evans, Did­cot
