The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Emmanuel Macron backs down over Brexit fishing row in move welcomed by Environment Secretary” – below is their description.

Britain has welcomed France having “stepped back” from threats to impose punitive action in a dispute over post-Brexit fishing licences as talks to settle the row continue.

George Eustice acknowledged a de-escalation from French president Emmanuel Macron as he held off on the action against British boats that he had warned could have been implemented on Tuesday.

But the Cabinet minister said a meeting between Brexit minister Lord Frost and his French counterpart on Thursday would be “very important” as further talks with the EU are also scheduled.
