Iranian diplomats expelled from the UK

Diplomats have been leaving the Iranian embassy in London following their expulsion by the government.

The ultimatum came after the British embassy in Tehran was stormed by hundreds of protesters on Tuesday causing outrage among ministers.

Following the attack, Foreign Secretary William Hague announced that all Iranian diplomats had 48 hours to close the embassy and vacate British soil.

Peter Biles reports.
