Lobster pots

Petition scuppered

The Cruising Association and Yachting Monthly had launched a petition asking the Government to tackle the problem of poorly-marked fishing gear.

However, due to the pre-election purdah the petition has been put on hold, even though 6,300 signatures had been added in just three weeks.

A new petition will start in June, but unfortunately the signatures appended to the old one will NOT be counted.
