The UK is in a tough spot, they don't want to appear to be weak, but from day 1 they said that if the cargo is not going to Syria, they would release it. So now Iran has given assurances it is not going there, so the legal reason for holding it is gone. The Iranians can claim they beat the UK up, but really the Brits would release it without the Iranians grabbing a tanker.
