Jeremy Hunt: Iran sees seizing of tanker as ‘tit for tat’

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt says "it was clear" Iran saw the seizing of a British-flagged tanker as "tit-for-tat" following the detainment of Grace 1 tanker.

He adds the government’s priority was to continue to find a way to “deescalate” the situation.
