Royal Navy ships patrolling Jersey amid fishing row with France

BBC, 06 May 2021
Two Royal Navy ships are patrolling waters around Jersey and two French patrol vessels are nearby, as fishermen protest over their post-Brexit rights.

About 60 French and Jersey boats are blocking the island's St Helier port, with a freight vessel unable to leave.

French fishermen say their rights are unfairly restricted by licences issued by the island under a new system.

Jersey officials are meeting the "peaceful" protesters to try and resolve the dispute.
