LOZENGE ACT:

Fisherman's Friends Net Catchy Album Deal (Lulu Sinclair, 3/18/10, Sky News

A group of Cornish fishermen have netted a major record deal and aims to sail to the top of the charts with sea shanties.

The 10-strong Fisherman's Friends, from Port Isaac, have landed an album deal - said to be worth £1m - with Universal Music, the company behind acts like Lady Gaga, Take That and Amy Winehouse.

Founding member Jeremy Brown, who has two brothers in the group, said: "We all grew up together with the exception of one member of the group who's from Yorkshire - but he's lived in the village for 30 years, so he is almost one of us.
