Second British tanker moving towards Iran - reports

A second British tanker is believed to have been seized by Iran after tracking data showed the vessel made a sharp turn towards Iran on Friday.

The Mesdar, which sails under the flag of Liberia, is owned by Norbulk Shipping UK Ltd and was constructed in 2007.

Earlier in the day, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) confirmed that it seized British-owned Stena Impero, saying it broke international regulations thus increasing "the likelihood of an accident or collision with other ships" and causing severe pollution in the Persian Gulf.
