Iran Seizes British Vessel

The British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has urged Iran to reverse its seizure of a British-flagged tanker in the Gulf.

Jeremy Hunt said it raises very serious questions about the security of British and International Shipping in the Strait of Hormuz.

It comes as Iran released new footage of the capture on Friday of the Stena Impero.

Tehran said the Vessel was violating International Maritime rules.

Speaking after a Phone call with his Iranian Counterpart, Mr hunt said Iran viewed this as a "tit-for-tat situation" following the detention of an Iranian tanker in Gibraltar.
