The UKIP fisheries spokesman, Ray Finch, MEP, will visit Lowestoft on Monday morning.

Mr Finch will join UKIP prospective parliamentary candidates for Waveney and Suffolk Coastal, Simon Tobin and Daryll Pitcher, along with a number of other local fishermen to discuss the EU fishing policy and its impact on the UK fishing industry.

Mr Finch will attend the fish shout (auction) at the docks before attending a question and answer meeting with the region’s PCC’s at the Hotel Victoria.

Mr Tobin said: “We as a nation must protect our traditional and sustainable industries, not strangle them with EU laws such as the constraint of the European Union fishing policy.

“Let us support this great industry in the UK.”
