Adml Sir Alan West, First Sea Lord, has demanded the return of three Royal Navy river patrol boats seized by Iran in June. He said it was "outrageous" that Iran still held them.

Eight British servicemen aboard the boats were arrested, accused of being in Iranian waters in the Shatt al-Arab waterway. They have been released.
