Share this article

YOUNG anglers can reel in prizes by taking part in a police fishing competition.

Junior angling matches, organised by Lancashire Police, give youngsters the opportunity to receive free fishing tuition and then put it into competitive practice.

The next event will take place on Saturday, July 30, at Borwick Waters, Borwick, Carnforth.

Fishing will begin at 10am, with the prize giving at 2pm.

Anglers aged between five and 18 are invited to take part, although only 60 places are available.

Entry and accompanying tuition is free and limited equipment will also be available for novices.

Entry forms can be obtained from Lancaster, Morecambe or Carnforth police station front counters – the closing date is July 15.

Certificates and medals will be given to all those who take part.
