  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Jersey fishing dispute: French boats hold protest off St Helier” – below is their description.

    Dozens of French boats are blockading Jersey’s capital of St Helier, while Royal Navy gunboats arrived this morning, as a row over post-Brexit fishing rights escalates.

    As many as 100 French fishing vessels are expected to sail to the island’s main port today to protest new rules imposed as part of the UK-EU trade deal, which limit their access to British waters around Jersey. HMS Tamar and HMS Severn, both of which are equipped with machine guns, are stationed just off the coast.
