It has been claimed French crews are fishing just six miles off the Cornish coast.

It is being called an escalation of the scallop wars, which saw Duchy vessels surrounded and threatened in international waters.

Jim Portus speaks for south-west fish producers. He has demanded government action over what he calls a 'political trade game'. He said: "Rumours that the French fishermen have said they will shift their campaign, such that British fisheries products being imported into France will be targeted. That is not only illegal, but it's highly damaging.

"They don't like the fact that British fishermen are operating further away from the coast but nevertheless harvesting larger quantities. The British fishermen and the British processing sector look after the product and market it well as well."
