With the pressure on moorings, why do the rangers not stop bank fishing at Bramerton at the times the signage prohibits it? I have seen rangers ignore people with fishing gear spread over the bank, more than once and I don't believe it is a case of them not being seen.
Is there not a case these days for bank fishing to be prohibited at all BA 24 hour moorings between June and, say, the end of September?
(I know that's 2 questions but they do inter- relate.)


Edited to add:
I know anglers can be asked to move but too many folk are reticent to confront the issue fearing retribution and we all know it has happened.

Rangers are instructed to enforce angling policy at all moorings where there is a restriction on angling but may have other priority incidents to attend to and therefore choose to deal with any breaches at a later time. Please do alert us however of any incidents which you believe weren’t dealt with so we can follow up.

We only took the decision to restrict angling at four sites (Beccles, Bramerton, Postwick and Worlingham) because problems were occurring at those sites and we see no justification for increasing the number of restrictions or applying a blanket restriction at all moorings when we are not aware of angling causing any major problems with mooring capacity.  We would, however, review individual sites if problems occur in the future.

What powers do the rangers have to enforce the policy?

BA must have known about problems at church fen brundall because the signage is exactly the same as bramerton and postwick , so clearly there are more than 4 sites affected , incidentally BA don't add to the existing signage they reproduce a whole new sign at cost to the mmm tolls , how the heck is that cost effective .
