Royal Navy ship returns from Jersey after fishing dispute

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.
