Protests by French fishermen over perceived delays in the issuance of licenses to fish in British waters were unjustified, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesman said on Friday.

"We have issued licenses to all vessels that have met the criteria and provided the relevant information, so we consider the reaction to be unjustified," the spokesman said.

French trawlermen angered by the slow issuance of licenses after Brexit on Thursday blocked lorries carrying UK-landed fish.
