Fisherman allowed to shoot seals


Some fishermen off the coast of Northumbria have been given permission to take drastic action against grey seals because they are eating their fish stocks.

One fisherman has a licence to shoot the seals, which he views as a menace.

Chris Jackson reports.

Viewers in the North East and Cumbria can see more on Inside Out on Monday on BBC One at 7.30pm.
