A spokeswoman for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said:
It was reported to us on Monday that a number of British fishing vessels were being confronted by French fishing vessels off the coast of Le Havre.
As this is outside UK waters, we contacted the French coastguard, who sent a French patrol vessel to the area.
We continue to liaise with the French authorities who have been dealing with the situation.
