Warning over doorstep fish sales on Teesside

Trading standards officers are warning people of high-pressure sales techniques being used to sell large quantities of fish on the doorstep.

Stockton Council said it has received reports from people in Yarm, Ingleby Barwick and Billingham.

They said some of the fish has been poor quality, possibly unfit to eat and people have paid far more than they would have done in local shops.

It is urging people not to buy unlabelled fish and check freshness.

By law fresh and frozen fish must be sold by metric weight, labelled with its name, where it was caught and the production method.
