Shoreham boat caught in Brexit dispute with the French
A scallop vessel that sails out of Shoreham Harbour has been detained in the French port Le Harve. The Scottish-owned boat was fishing without a licence, claim French authorities. Macduff Shellfish, who own the Cornelis Gert Jan, claim it was fishing legally.
This appears to be a result of heightened tensions with the French post-Brexit, with Foreign Secretary Liz Truss taking the unusual step of summoning the French Ambassador to explain what is happening.

In the meantime, yet more sewage went into our seas:
