Urban fishing comes to Manchester
It was only 30 years ago that the River Irwell, which flows through Manchester and Salford, was classified as one of the most polluted waterways in Europe. Now however, the river is so clean, it's welcoming back not just fish - but also anglers!
And for the fishing folk who line the river banks, it's a chance to escape the bustle of city life and relax.Tim Scott reports.
