Angler fined for removing fish from lake

An angler in the Fens has become the first to be prosecuted under new by-laws which forbid the removal of coarse fish from stillwaters.

Mark Whisker, from Wisbech, was fined £250 and ordered to pay costs of £127 in the landmark prosecution, at King's Lynn magistrates court.

Whisker, 27, was caught by police and EA bailiffs with five carp in his car on June 3 - two days after the by-laws came into force, the court was told.
