Special forces stormed an oil tanker off the Isle of Wight to prevent it from being hijacked by stowaways

The Guardian has the overall summary.  But Island Echo, "the Isle of Wight’s only truly independent 24-hour news source" has the play by play:

UPDATE @ 14:24 – Hampshire Constabulary have positioned an officer on observation duty at the top of Cowleaze, monitoring the vessel from afar.


The situation remains largely unchanged since the alarm was raised at around 10:30.
