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.


Horror in the seas

The week seems to have been dominated by the news that the government voted against an amendment to stop the water companies dumping sewage into our rivers and seas. Our MP, to his credit, was one of a handful on the Conservative benches that voted for the amendment.

The general public horror — the scramble by some MPs to claim that they didn’t know what they were voting for — has not been very impressive.

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

Sewage emptied into water at ten Sussex beaches (swimmers should avoid these areas)
OPEN water swimmers are being warned to avoid locations across the Sussex coast after sewage was emptied into the water following last week’s storm.
