UK sends Royal Navy to patrol Jersey amid fishing row with France

Brief summary

BBC News says a Royal Navy vessel is patrolling waters around Jersey amid concerns of a possible blockade by French boats over post-Brexit fishing rights.

France has threatened to cut off electricity to the island, which began issuing licenses to French boats under a new system last week.

Fishermen who claim their rights are being unfairly restricted are due to protest at Jersey’s port of St Helier.
