UK to summon French envoy over ship detention

The United Kingdom will summon French Ambassador to the UK Catherine Colonna to the Foreign Office after France detained a British ship over an alleged lack of permit to fish in French waters, a spokesperson for Downing Street revealed on Thursday.

"The proposed French actions are unjustified and do not appear to be compatible on the EU's part with the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) or wider international law," the official stated.

"We have raised our concerns strongly with both the French and the EU Commission," the UK spokesperson added.
