Boris Johnson overpays for box of cod during fish market visit

Boris Johnson appeared to overpay for a box of cod after getting into a bidding war at a fish market in Scotland.

The Prime Minister joined in with an auction during a visit to Peterhead Fish Market to meet people in the fishing and farming industries.

Mr Johnson, accompanied by the Scottish Secretary Alister Jack, was shown around the market and joined in with bidding for fish, winning an auction for a box of cod with a £185 bid.

Asked whether it was a good price, Simon Brebner – the chief executive of the Peterhead Fish Market, said: “If you’re selling, it’s a great price.

If you’re buying, maybe it’s a little high.

“It depends on supply and demand, but on Fridays you get good prices.” Although he won the overpriced fish, placing his ticket in the ice-filled box, Mr Johnson left the market without his purchase and aides were unable to confirm what would happen to the box.
