A fisherman has been robbed at knife-point while three miles out at sea. Police report a lone man was fishing in the channel of Slapton Sands, off the coast of South Devon, when two men an inflatable boat approached. After the fisherman confronted the men, they threatened him with a knife, cut his nets and stole his catch. Local reports say the fisherman had a quantity of plaice and Dover sole stolen. Both are popular fish, and the latter is high-end: a Dover selling for £40 or more in a restaurant is not uncommon. A theft at sea like this is extremely rare, concerning the fishing community. >click to read<12:09
