Fishing licences warning issued
Four hundred people have been caught fishing without a licence in the East Midlands so far this year, according to figures from the Environment Agency.

Anglers have been urged to make sure they have a valid licence or they risk a 2,500 fine.

The Agency says licence fees help to maintain fish stocks and fund work to detect and treat diseases in fish.

Rod licences can be bought from Post Offices and also from the Agency via its phone and website.
