>Concerns a similar fishing dispute could occur in Guernsey have been expressed by a representative of the local fishing industry.
>The vice president of Guernsey Fisherman's Association, Dougal Lane, said the French extended the limits they were allowed to fish from their shores from 30km (19 miles) to 50km (31 miles) in 2020. He explained under Guernsey's upcoming fishing licencing scheme French fisherman "might be expecting to come into our waters" but could be prevented from doing so. "There might well be problems," Mr Lane added.
>The States of Guernsey is currently in the process of setting up its own licensing scheme.
