Lobster hatchery to boost catch

Fishermen in East Yorkshire are applying to build the east coast's first lobster breeding centre to boost their stocks.
The lobster fishing industry is worth more than £5m a year to the local economy and employs about 400 people.
A group of fishermen are hoping to win European funding to develop a hatchery at Bridlington harbour within a year.
