Talks between the UK and France to end a dispute over scallop fishing in the English Channel have ended without agreement, fishing leaders have said.

There were reports of stones and smoke bombs being hurled at UK fishing crews.The SWFPA said on Wednesday evening: "So disappointing for everyone; so near but yet so far."A period of understanding and acceptance is required at this time. No-one wants to see conflict on the high seas. Hopefully lessons learned by all."

.@SWFPA no agreement with our French colleagues on the Baie De Seine. So disappointing for everyone; so near but yet so far.
A period of understanding and acceptance is required at this time.
