Paul Whitehouse opens Dee salmon season

Comedian Paul Whitehouse has formally opened the salmon fishing season on the River Dee near Banchory.

The Fast Show star is a regular visitor to the area. He follows Billy Connolly and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall who have performed the ceremony in previous years.

The Scottish government has indicated it wants to make permanent a trial two-week extension to the season which means anglers can fish into October.
