Brexit protest: Shellfish drivers block roads near 10 Downing Street

  • Scottish fishermen turn to Denmark for sales

One lorry, with the slogan "Brexit Carnage" on the side, parked metres from Downing Street, where Prime Minister Boris Johnson has his official residence.

Many Scottish fishermen have not been able to export their stocks to Europe since the start of 2021 after the introduction of catch certificates, health checks and customs declarations.

Police were asking the drivers for details, news agency Reuters reported.

"We strongly feel the system could potentially collapse", said Gary Hodgson, a director of Venture Seafoods, which exports live and processed crabs and lobsters to the European Union has trucks parked near Downing Street. The move follows a letter sent by the Scottish Fishermen's Federation to prime minister Boris Johnson, protesting at a "desperately poor deal", which leaves the industry "in the worst of both worlds". He said he has not exported a single box this year.

A spokesman for the British government's environment ministry declined immediate comment.

Yesterday, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab claimed delays to fishing experts were simply "teething problems".

The Scotland Food & Drink association said exporters could be losing more than £1 million in sales a day.

Those participating in the protest said the British government needed to understand the severity of the problems they face and the impact on coastal communities.

Miller delivers brown crab, lobster and prawns to the European Union but the red tape means live shellfish is getting to market much later - and thus getting lower prices.

The government say this is "in recognition of the unique circumstances of the fishing sector, which has had the most significant new requirements to adjust to, and for whom even a short delay can lead to goods perishing - at a time when the industry is facing lower market prices and demand due to the pandemic".

Miller criticised Johnson's Brexit trade deal, saying delivery times had doubled to at least 48 hours from 24 hours. "It's insane", he said.
