12:30pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
A production team from BBC auction show Flog It! have been searching for oysters off Mersea Island.
Presenter Paul Martin was making a short clip yesterday morning with Company Shed owner Richard Haward, which will be included in the show filmed in Layer Marney Tower last month.
Mr Martin said: “We had a wonderful morning.
“We’re flying the flag for Essex.
“We were doing some conservation work and picking up small rock oysters and putting them in the rock bed.
“This is a family run business and it is a traditional industry that is very special in this area.”
Once filming was complete the team tucked into a meal at The Company Shed.
