Warning after 80ft illegal fishing net removed from Spalding's Coronation Channel
Illegal fisherman are being warned after an 80ft illegal fishing net was removed from a Spalding waterway.
An 80-foot-long illegal fishing net has been removed from the Coronation Channel of the River Welland at Spalding by Environment Agency enforcement officers.
The gill net stretched across the entire width of the channel – and to set it up, the offenders would have risked their lives to negotiate a dangerous, derelict railway bridge.
