Cardigan Bay scallop dredging consultation resumes

A consultation into plans to restart scallop dredging in Cardigan Bay has resumed.

Commercial scallop fishing came to an end in the bay five years ago when it became a special area of conservation.

A study has since found the seabed could withstand a certain level of dredging, however, campaigners say it would be an ecological disaster.

The Welsh government halted the 12-week consultation on November 25 but it has now restarted.

Matt Murray reports.
