EU sanctions, backed by the Scottish government, will be imposed on the Faroe Islands amid accusations of over-fishing. Scottish fishermen claim that the Faroe Islands' decision to treble their quota will adversely affect both fish stocks and jobs. Charlotte Smith speaks directly to the Faroese Prime Minister, who says it's a very different story from where he's standing.
