An exhibition has opened in Margate in Kent celebrating "herring lassies"' - the army of women from the North East and Scotland who worked as gutters and packers for fishermen.
The Follow the Herring exhibition, whose centrepiece is a knitted catch of fish, will also visit Folkestone and Hastings.
BBC South East Today's Jane Witherspoon spoke to artist Dan Chilcott and Margate resident Peggy Company.
