Trawlermen 'cod wars' payout hope

Scottish trawlerman compensated for losing their livelihoods in the "cod wars" with Iceland in the 1970s could be in line for extra money.

The UK Government is consulting on a new scheme, which is being launched in the summer.

It will allow those who received less than they expected during a previous payout to apply for additional money.

It comes after the parliamentary ombudsman found the former scheme to be unfair.

Anyone who wants to have their say can download the consultation from the Department for Business' website or by contacting 0845 015 0010.
