    Seven suspects have been detained after a suspected hijacking involving stowaways on a tanker off the Isle of Wight.

    UK special forces completed the operation in nine minutes, BBC Defence Correspondent Jonathan Beale said.
    Military assistance had been requested after the stowaways on board the Liberian-registered Nave Andromeda reportedly became violent.

    The crew, who were locked in the ship's citadel, are safe.

    The Ministry of Defence called the incident a "suspected hijacking" and said Defence Secretary Ben Wallace and Home Secretary Priti Patel authorised the operation in response to a police request.
