As it seems clear from the footage currently being broadcast, as well as the news reports, the 15 hostages are being released!
We are of course overjoyed that the British personnel are being released from their captivity. Their families, like the rest of the British people, will of course be relieved when they are back, safe, on home soil.
The protest planned for 6.45 this evening outside the Iranian Embassy in South Kensington is therefore cancelled and is being moved to a celebratory drink in the nearby Hoop and Toy pub round the corner from South Kensington tube station. Map here. We will bring a couple of "Free the Navy 15" placards with us so you can recognise us.
Should anyone have trouble finding it, please call 07736009548. There will also be someone opposite the Iranian Embassy at 6.45pm to bring along anyone who turns up there.
We will let you know as soon as we learn when and where the hostages are to arrive back in the UK, so we can organise a welcome party to greet them.
Free the Navy 15
