UK Threatens Retaliation Amid Escalating Fishing Rights Row

The UK Government has threatened to retaliate against France amid an escalating post-Brexit fishing rights row. This comes as British officials are "urgently" investigating reports that a British scallop trawler has been seized by France. French authorities said the boat was found not to hold a proper licence and was diverted to the port of Le Havre where it’s currently detained by the judicial authority. This is only the latest in an increasingly bitter dispute between France and the UK. Negotiations between the UK and the EU over the fishing rights dispute are still ongoing.
