Fishermen in Wales struggling after storms, warns industry

Fishermen say the severe winter has hit their business hard amid warnings the industry is on a precipice.

Their association is calling for financial help while wholesalers who sell the catches say they are also facing cash worries.

Some fishermen have told BBC Wales they have not been able to work in the last two months because of ruined equipment.

The Welsh government said it was waiting to hear if extra funding for flood damage from the UK government would come to Wales.
