A Royal Navy fishing patrol ship has returned to base after being scrambled to Jersey in response to the protest by French fishermen. HMS Severn and its sister ship HMS Tamar were deployed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as 60 fishing vessels sailed to the port of St Helier in an escalation of the row over post-Brexit fishing rights. Although the demonstration was halted by Thursday afternoon and the fishing boats returned to France, the French navy also sent two of its ships to monitor the situation.

Two Royal Navy vessels are patrolling the waters around Jersey amid concerns of a possible blockade of the island’s main port due to French fishermen protesting over post-Brexit fishing rights. About 60 French and Jersey boats are currently blocking the Island’s St Helier port. The French fishers are outraged over new licensing rules introduced last week that restrict the number of days they can operate in shared waters. French authorities have also argued that the “new technical measures” had not been communicated to the EU. The French government have even warned of cutting off island’s electricity amid the escalating row. Senator Ian Gorst revealed in a statement on Wednesday night that they “will continue to liaise closely with UK and EU officials over the coming hours and days to achieve a pragmatic solution.” Report by Bradbrookh.
