Scotland's Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing has vowed to get the "best deal" for Scotland's fishermen, the BBC reports.

He made the pledge after meeting with fishing industry leaders to discuss the future of the sector in the wake of the EU referendum result.

Many fishermen welcomed the Brexit vote, having claimed they were unfairly treated by the European Union.

However, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she wants to protect Scotland's position in Europe.

Speaking after the meeting Glasgow, fishing sector representatives said the meeting was "very fruitful".

And Mr Ewing said key fishing talks would continue over the minimum two-year period needed for Brexit negotiations.
