UK fishermen hopeful of netting late deal in EU trade talks

A European Union summit on Thursday and Friday will attempt to unlock stalled talks, with London weighed down by wrangling over a key future fishing agreement. Brussels insists its vessels must continue to enjoy unfettered access to UK waters even after a post-Brexit transition phase that ends on December 31. Britain wants this access limited significantly and has called for fishing rights in its waters to be renegotiated annually.
