UK calls on Iran to release seized ship 'immediately'

Downing Street called on Iran on Monday to release the seized Stena Impero tanker "immediately," and stressed that "it is clear the seizure was illegal."

A spokesman for Number 10 stressed that it was "highly escalatory" that Iran's forces captured the tanker which was "going about legitimate business."

Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt spoke to French and German counterparts the tanker incidents and he is set to make a public statement on the situation later today, Number 10 added.
