Fish and chip shops across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are being asked to agree to a new code of practice which supports sustainable fishing. 

The Marine Stewardship Council aims to protect fish stocks for the future, but only ten restaurants have signed up to the MSC code.

Watch: 'Violent and vicious' fugitive detained for life for murder

Laura Foster

BBC Look North

A teenager has been jailed for life after stabbing a man to death in Hull. 

Agustin Sula, 18, stabbed Mateusz Szleper seven times, piercing his heart and lungs in revenge for a "perceived slight" by one of the victim's friends.

Sula came to Hull in 2014 from Albania as a fugitive after being convicted of theft and sentenced to six months imprisonment in his own country.

Laura Foster reports from Hull Crown Court:

Given what you did, and the fact you repeatedly carried a knife, you are, thus, a dangerous individual. I have no means of being able to gauge at this stage when, or if, it will be ever safe to release you."

Figures released by the Marine Stewardship Council reveal that only 16 fish and chip shops in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire comply with its sustainability criteria. 

That means their fish is sourced from areas of the sea where stocks are sustainable and can recover from fishing.
