WHITBY’S Paul Brittan continues to lead the race for the £1,000 jackpot in the town’s spring angling festival which reaches its nail-biting conclusion on Sunday (17 Apr).

Paul, a former Whitby trawlerman, reeled in a 15lb 0.5oz cod from Sea Otter last Friday to claim the daily prize.

The event - organised by the Whitby Charter Skippers’ Association - has picked up nicely with the warm weather bringing about some better catches.
