Meredith is calling for Royal Navy protection for the British fisherman.

Jimmy Buchan, celebrity fishing skipper and business manager for the Scottish Seafood Association, said the "militant" attack had placed lives at risk and demanded action be taken to allow the United Kingdom crews to return to the waters safely today.

A flotilla of more than a hundred trawlers in the Bay of Seine in November of previous year.

The clash, which ended when the British boats fled, represented the latest escalation in tensions during a long-running battle over scallops. This sea battle took place in worldwide waters.

Around 40 French vessels gathered to confront the British off the coast of Normandy.

France bans all scallop dredging between 15 May and 1 October, but Britain allows its vessels to operate year-round.

"I can't believe that someone wasn't killed", the Daily Mail quoted a fisherman from Brixham as saying. "The French nearly completely surrounded the British" who then left the area, he said, adding that there were no injuries or damage.

'We could have gone over there the day the agreement ended but thought it would be better to go when the weather was better and to go in numbers in case something like this happened.

"We can insist that the French, because they have a responsibility to ensure that we don't have scenes like those we saw earlier this week, ensure that those waters - their territorial waters - are appropriately policed so that legal fishing activity can continue".

"Things were thrown on both sides - from the English and from the French".

'The French went to contact the British to stop them working and they clashed with each other, ' said Normandy fishing chief Dimitri Rogoff, claiming that while there was stone-throwing he had not heard of any injuries or damage.

Scallops are a valuable commodity here, but fishermen like Julien Hue, who also joined the protest, are only allowed to fish for them seven months of every year because of environmental law imposed by his own government.

Furious French fishermen also hurled smoke bombs and insults at British rivals.

"The BBC says that ultimately, "[the] British couldn't match the local armada for numbers.

Britain's scallop fishing industry is worth around £120million a year and supports more than 1,200 jobs.

So, UK fleets can dredge the area lying more than 12 miles off the coast at this time of year. But it's usually without the violence that was captured by a French TV crew. "We have disputes from time to time". The French however have accused the United Kingdom of "depleting shellfish stocks". This year, they asked that all British boats stay away from the scallop fishing grounds until they could share the catch, from October onwards.

The French fishermen wanted to prevent their English counterparts from being able to take the scallops and so surrounded their boats.

He joined the blockade to try to stop the British boats moving closer to the French coast in search of the locally prized shellfish.
