Big game fishing is to return to the UK for the first time in 70 years thanks to the resurgence of giant bluefin tuna off the south west coast.<br />
<br />
The government has listened to calls from the angling community and agreed to relax the laws on catching the endangered fish.<br />
<br />
Bluefin tuna, which can grow to 700lbs and sell for £1m in Asian markets, have made a stunning return to British waters in recent years.<br />
Their recovery is thought to be linked to an increase in sardines and sprats which they feed on.
