North Yorkshire man held in Iran

4:29pm 1st December 2009

A North Yorkshire man's one of five British sailors being held in Iran.

26 year old Sam Usher from Scarborough is a member of the group who was arrested when their racing yacht strayed into disputed waters.

Now our Government's demanding their immediate release.

The Iranian authority says it will take "hard and serious" action if they can prove the sailers had "evil intentions" when straying into the country's terriorial waters.

Foreign Secretary David Miliband says negotiations are taking place with no argument or confrontation.
