Pirate FM has learnt it has been the worst ever start to a year for some Cornish fisherman.

Crab and lobster hauls have dropped by up to half this year around the south west coast.

It is because cold weather had led to a drop in sea temperatures.

Nick Prust, Chairman of the South West Inshore Fishing Association, said: "They all need to be making money. There's costs, large costs. Even with the smallest of vessels. It would be very welcome if we had a heatwave for a couple of weeks and it'll certainly liven some things up.

"For the owners, the skippers and crews, their earnings are well down. They rely on it for their full time fishing, so they have to try and make hay now, on the crabs, between now and Christmas."
