More patrols and new signs to tackle illegal fishing in Rushcliffe

Following reports of illegal fishing, police officers have been conducting further patrols at Cotgrave lake.

Police officers engaged with members of the public, checking rod licences and displaying new signs.

The new signs have been placed around Cotgrave Fishing Lake following partnership work with the Angling Trust and Building Bridges programme – these signs state in a number of languages what you must do in order to fish legally.
