Two French fishing vessels have been detained by the Naval Service for alleged breaches of fishing regulations.

The LE Ciara detained Le Derby and Bugel Ar Mor about 60 miles south of Cork Harbour.

The alleged offences relate to technical measures concerning fishing gear.

Both vessels are being escorted to Cobh  where they are expected to arrive in the morning.

Earlier, an Irish fishing vessel, the Ocean Reaper 2, was detained by the LE Emer and has been escorted to Castletownbere.
