A plan which could have cost southwest fishing crews £6 million is scrapped.

Leaders are giving a cautious welcome to new quotas.

It will mean they will be able to catch more haddock, sole and cod.

Fishing minister Richard Benyon reckons that is only fair: "We managed to argue this through and we've got a lot of changes, which I think will be welcomed by fishermen in the south west. What I am absolutely convinced is that this is not the way we should be managing our fisheries, and we want to see a reformed Common Fisheries policy where this sort of thing doesn't happen.

"Fishermen in the south west tell me that there is more cod in their region than they've seen for some time and I'm really pleased that we've been able to secure an increase in the cod quota in the south west."
