Hastings Fishing Families on show in Parliament

Normally, Paul Joy and the other Hastings fishermen go up to Parliament to talk to DEFRA and European fishing organisations, but last night, they were the stars of their own show in the House of Commons. HOT’s Erica Smith went ‘up to town’ to visit the show and meet the stars of the sea.
