Iran has summoned the British ambassador to formally protest Britain’s “illegal interception” of an Iranian oil tanker in the Strait of Gibraltar.

The ship was boarded by Royal Marines early on Thursday and seized.

It is alleged that it was delivering oil to a Syrian refinery in breach of EU sanctions against the Assad regime.
