These striking photos show today's Scottish seafood exporters' protest outside Westminster and Downing Street

Dozens of Scottish seafood lorries descended on London this morning to protest new post-Brexit paperwork that has tied the industry “in knots”.

More than 10 of the haulage vehicles were photographed parked near Downing Street and Whitehall to raise awareness of changes to regulations that have caused severe delays that threaten seafood exporters’ businesses.

Dozens more lorries, including several from Scottish seafood suppliers D.R. Collin & Son, and Islay Crab Exports were also filmed driving past the Houses of Parliament.

Signs on the lorries accused the Government of “destroying shellfish industry,” and called the exporting delays “Brexit Carnage”.
