British fishing trawler detained by French authorities


French maritime minister Annick Girardin has said two British vessels were cautioned during checks off Le Havre overnight.

She said the first did not comply right away and the second was not allowed to fish in French waters so was detained.

A spokeswoman for the UK government said it was “urgently” looking into reports of French enforcement activity.
