Sarah Newton raises concerns about aggression towards Westcountry fishing boats

It is unacceptable that Westcountry fisherman legally working in international waters have been subject to acts of aggression and intimidation.

I am pleased that the Government’s initial response to this incident has been robust and have now written urgently to the Minster at the Foreign Office to request further information on what actions will be taken to ensure that such aggression is not repeated.

It is crucially important that our fishermen are able to fish without fear of attack, as they continue to supply our shops and supermarket with the fresh, sustainable fish for which the Westcountry is famed.
