Moment French fishermen fire flares and throw frying pans at Brit trawler in new Scallop War

Scallop wars have once again broken out in the English Channel as French trawlers confronted British counterparts, firing flares and throwing frying pans. Two British boats, the Girl Macey, skippered by Scott Glover, and the Golden Promise, by Brian Whittington, were involved in the deep-sea skirmish. They were surrounded by around 20 French vessels and were pelted by objects including frying pans and rocks off the Normandy coast at around 1.30am on Monday morning. The hostile French crews even threw oil at the Gal Macey before firing a flare at the boat before apparently escorting them out of the Baie de la Seine. >click to read< 11:08
