Jeremy Hunt on Iran: UK 'not seeking to escalate' tension

Jeremy Hunt says that the government are "making it clear to Iran" that they are "not seeking to escalate" current tensions in the Gulf.

The foreign secretary said the reason that the Grace 1 tanker was seized off the coast of Gibraltar was because it was going to Syria and, therefore, in breach of sanctions.
