Brexit Live: Brussels plans to seize power as companies target | Politics | News

Fisheries communities in the UK are set to benefit from £ 75 million in government investment to boost the sector’s growth after Brexit.

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

They aim to strengthen the fishing industry’s ability to land more fish in the UK and bring the product to market more quickly.

The taxpayer-funded investment is intended to improve the capacity and efficiency of fishing ports and processing facilities.

Ministers say the move will boost the long-term sustainability of the fisheries sector and support jobs, while crews seize the increased opportunity created by the UK’s departure from the Brussels-run Commons Fisheries Policy.
