Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “French fishermen block ports and traffic across English Channel” – below is their description.

French fishermen have blocked ports and ferry traffic across the English Channel.

They are angry about losing access to the United Kingdom’s waters and want more licences than the UK has granted them.

It stems from a dispute over fishing rights after Britain left the European Union, a process known as Brexit.

Al Jazeera’s @Andrew Simmons reports Calais, France.
