Dozens of French boats protest off Jersey in row with UK over fishing rights - BBC News

 Around 60 French fishing boats have taken part in a protest outside Jersey's largest port in a dispute over access to the island's waters. Two Royal Navy vessels were sent to deal with a possible blockade of St Helier and France responded by dispatching two patrol vessels of its own. Under the Brexit trade agreement only French crews with a history of fishing in the area qualify for a licence. But the French say these licences include restrictions and conditions that have not been agreed.
