    The Scottish food exporting industry was promised friction-free access to European markets after Brexit.

    Its most valuable export, shellfish, goes almost entirely to France, Spain and the Netherlands.

    But mistakes, poor direction and last-minute regulations have all contributed to problems, leaving shellfish rotting in their containers.

    Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from Glasgow, Scotland.
