Two Spanish fishing firms have been handed some of the largest fines in British maritime history by a Truro court. It follows an investigation into log book fraud.
The two companies and their two skippers deliberately disguised the amount of fish they were catching. They've been fined more than one point six million pounds. The judge said the crime involved "flagrant, repeated and long term abuse of EU fishing regulations".
They were caught off the Cornish coast. Kathy Wardle reports.
