French fishers to block Channel tunnel in Brexit licences row


Members of industry association say large number of vehicles will be used to block key artery between nations

French fishers plan to block the Channel tunnel and the port of Calais on Friday in protest at Britain’s failure to issue them with more fishing licences since Brexit.

Members of the fishers’ association told an online news conference on Thursday that a large number of vehicles would be used to block the tunnel, which is used to ship goods by rail between Britain and France.
