British special forces have boarded a tanker off the Isle of Wight and gained control after a suspected hijacking.

Members of the elite Special Boat Service landed on the vessel by helicopter.

Seven people have been detained on the Liberian-registered vessel, which was heading for Southampton. The crew are said to be safe and well.
