Time is running out for competitors in Whitby’s summer angling festival to clinch the £5,000 top prize.

Currently leading the way is Peter Lockwood with a 17lb 4oz cod caught a week last Sunday from Two Dogs.

But his lead is not safe – at the spring angling festival in Whitby, the overall leader was defeated at the final weigh-in by someone who had never fished before.

The competition ends this Sunday (July 12).
