BBC:

Iran has apologised for the attacks but Britain has warned Tehran of ‘serious consequences’

Britain is withdrawing some diplomats from Iran following the attack on its embassy in the capital, Tehran, on Tuesday, diplomatic sources say.

The Foreign Office said “some staff” were leaving “for their own safety”, but gave no further details of the numbers involved.

Norway has said it has closed its embassy, citing security concerns.

Tuesday’s attack followed Britain’s decision to impose further sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme.

It led to Iran’s parliament voting to reduce diplomatic relations with the UK.

‘Hasty’

Hundreds of protesters – whom Iran described as “students” – massed outside the embassy compound on Tuesday afternoon before scaling the walls and the gates, burning British flags and a car.
