    The boats are getting bigger!! Why did the military have to intervene? The result will be the same whether they were arrested on board the boat or just allowed to claim asylum when the ship docked.

    My guess is one of the silly hijackers or stowaways probably mentioned to the police that we have a bomb on board

    Nice little training exercise for the SBS it was nothing more because the so-called hijackers were just stowaways trying to get into the country and clearly said they said we have a bomb at some point to the police

    Knowing our government they'll probably be given £1000 and a free stay at a 5 star hotel..

    No one knows what really happened😂
    I don't believe anyone would try to Hijack Oil Tanker 20 miles away from UK mainland.

    This is an act of piracy. Let’s see the government’s reaction. Hotel and universal credit already been arranged?

    The stowaways probably just wanted to get to the UK and the hijacking was plan B, if they got caught by the crew. This sort of thing could become a new tactic.

    Do the SBS boys still belong to their families and us .or Boris police thugs.
