Lobster hatchery to boost catch

25 October 2012 Last updated at 17:57 BST

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.
