It's the end of another tense day in the case of the 15 British sailors and marines who were captured by Iranian forces on Friday.

In typical British fashion Tony Blair has issued a stern if slightly understated threat to "ratchet up diplomatic and international pressure" to force Iran into freeing the prisoners. Freezing biilateral business certainly isn't going to be the clincher.
