    British Navy vessels patrolled waters around Jersey on Thursday as dozens of French boats gathered near the island’s main port in protest over post-Brexit fishing rights.

The dispute erupted after Jersey implemented new requirements requiring French fishing crews  to submit their past fishing activities in order to receive a license to continue operating in Jersey waters.
