A fisherman from the Isle of Wight told the BBC that EU regulations were making his job too difficult.
Pete Williams claimed he didn’t have “any option” with the Brexit vote last June.

Another resident from the Isle of Wight took a swipe at Remainers for not accepting the will of the British people, insisting it was “tough luck”.
He told the BBC: “The younger ones didn’t bother to vote and then come to the results it didn’t go the way they wanted and ‘oh, come on let’s have another vote’. It’s tough luck.”
In the EU referendum last June, 62 per cent of Isle of Wight voter’s, chose to leave the bloc.
