Threat to salmon fishing on the Severn: Full report

The only full-time salmon fisherman on the River Severn says new regulations could put him out of business and destroy a traditional way of life.

The Environment Agency licences river fishing. It has told Nigel Mott he can catch no more than 30 fish a year.

He fishes for wild salmon near Lydney using wire cages which the salmon swim into as the tide ebbs.
