There is a warning cutting Cornwall's fishing quotas by a quarter could kill the industry.

Officials are meeting in Brussels to decide limits for next year.

There are fears they could be slashed because there is not enough data on stocks.

Looe fisherman David Bond says he already has to rely on tourist trade: "What used to be a twelve month year round business has now become, pretty much, totally reliant on me having a succesful summer season. Because of the quotas in the winter, this boat is restricted so much it's barely viable to be quite honest".

South-West MEP Julie Girling says officials have not got enough data to go on: "It's a precautionary thing they say but we said back in September this wouldn't work. They've done, it appears, no extra work to try and get some data. It looks like the fishermen in the south-west are going to be suffering as a result of no data which is crazy".
