Fisherman fined for illegal scallop dredging in Cardigan Bay

A Cornish fisherman who earned almost half a million pounds illegally dredging scallops off Cardigan Bay has been fined a tenth of that figure.

Mark Powell, 44, from Penryn, was ordered to pay £50,000 at Swansea Crown Court, much less than had been expected.
