Brexit LIVE: This is why we left! Brussels plots major power grab as companies targeted


Fishing communities across the UK are set to benefit from £75million of Government investment to spur the industry’s post-Brexit growth.

Ministers announced the extra cash last night to provide better local infrastructure around the country’s harbours to mark the first anniversary of the UK’s exit from the EU’s single market this weekend.

They aim to strengthen the fishing industry’s ability to land more fish in the UK and take the produce to market faster.

The taxpayer-funded investment has been earmarked for improving the capacity and efficiency of fishing harbours and processing facilities.

Ministers say the move will boost the long-term sustainability of the fishing industry and support jobs while crews seize the increased opportunity opened up by the UK’s departure from Brussels-run Commons Fisheries Policy.
