Summary

The documentary follows more stories of people living in poverty in Grimsby. In the 1950s, the Lincolnshire town was the largest fishing port in the world, but it has experienced almost the complete loss of the industry and there are just four trawlers left. From fishermen out of work after a lifetime at sea, to people doing whatever they can to make ends meet, the programme highlights the reality of deprivation for many people in the UK, and gives a voice to those suffering the impact of long-term unemployment.
