France has said it is ready to send more police boats to its north coast to prevent further clashes between French and British fishermen over scallops.

Authorities said they would increase the police presence "if necessary" to prevent a repeat of clashes in which boats collided and stones were thrown.

French fishermen sent nearly 40 boats to confront UK rivals they accuse of depleting scallop stocks off Normandy.

But the British say they are legally entitled to fish there.
