    European Union fishermen will be eligible for compensation if the UK blocks access to its fishing waters in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit, the European Commission confirmed on Wednesday. The EU executive tabled an amendment to its rules on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, which provides financial support to coastal communities and fishermen, enabling them to be compensated if the UK prevents them from fishing its waters.
