A recording of a conversation emerges moments before oil tanker was seized in the Gulf

A recording of a conversation has emerged between a British Royal Navy frigate and an Iranian armed forces vessel, moments before the British oil tanker was seized in the Gulf on Friday.

In the recording, the Iranian vessel tells HMS Montrose that it wants to inspect the Stena Impero for security reasons. British Defence Secretary, Tobias Ellwood, said that sanctions against Iran were among the choices being considered. However the Iranian ambassador in London warned the U.K. that tensions will continue to escalate.

The British Foreign Affairs Secretary has called on Iran to refrain from illegally holding the British tanker.
