LONDON (Reuters) -Britain is fully in compliance with the rules of its post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union, and wants further talks with French and EU officials over why a UK trawler has been detained by France, a government spokesman said on Thursday. Earlier on Thursday Britain condemned France's seizure of a British fishing boat in French waters as "disproportionate" in a dispute over post-Brexit fishing rights that risks spinning out of control. A spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said London's ambassador to France was in touch with Paris's Europe minister over the matter and Britain's Environment, Food and Rural Affairs minister was working with the EU commissioners.

France seized a British trawler fishing in its territorial waters without a license on Thursday (October 28). It also issued a warning to a second vessel as a dispute over access to fishing grounds after Brexit escalated.France is furious that Britain has refused to grant its fishermen the full number of licenses to operate inside British waters that France says is warranted.Clement Beaune is France's Europe minister:"It's time for us to get respect. I stand by the fact we issued threats and pursued dialog until now, since it allowed our fishermen to have a bit over half of the fishing licenses today. We have to also see the glass half full but that's not enough and not acceptable at all. So now, we need to speak the language of strength since that seems to be the only thing this British government understands."The French government said it would from November 2nd impose extra customs checks on British goods entering France.That raises the prospect of more economic pain before Christmas for Britain, which is facing labor shortages and rising energy prices.It is also reviewing a second round of sanctions and does not exclude a review of its exports of electricity to Britain.France's Seas Minister on Thursday told French radio, "It's not war, but it is a fight."British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the detained trawler.Britain has said France's planned acts of retaliation will be met with an appropriate and calibrated response.
