The French Government have sent a direct warning to the United Kingdom over the fisheries row. According to Macron, if the UK continues to protect its own waters, France will disrupt its energy supply.
Brexit Minister Lord Frost has responded to these threats by confirming that Westminster will not stop defending the integrity of British waters.
In a statement, Frost said: “It is very disappointing that France has felt it necessary to make threats late this evening against the UK fishing industry and seemingly traders more broadly.
“As we have had no formal communication from the French Government on this matter we will be seeking urgent clarification of their plans. We will consider what further action is necessary in that light.”
