LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Monday it planned to set up a European-led force to protect shipping in the Gulf after Iranian authorities seized a British flag carrier last week.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced this after an emergency cabinet meeting to respond to Friday's incident.

"We will now seek to form a European maritime protection mission to ensure the safe passage of crews and cargoes in this vital region," Hunt told British lawmakers.

"We will seek to form this force as soon as possible ... and it will not be part of the policy of American pressure on Iran."

Hunt also announced that another warship sent by Britain to the Gulf waters would arrive on July 29.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards detained on Friday the Swedish-owned tanker Stina Impero, flying the flag of Britain because it did not respect the "international law of the sea", which the British reject.

The ship and its 23 crew members are being held off the southern Iranian port of Bandar Abbas.

Her detention came hours after a court in Gibraltar, British territory in the southernmost part of Spain, extended the detention of the Iranian oil tanker Grace 1 for 30 days.

It is suspected that the ship was carrying oil to Syria, which is a violation of European sanctions against it, but Iran denies it. It was captured by British troops on July 4.

Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabie said Iran's seizure of the oil tanker was a "legal measure" necessary to "ensure regional security."

Iran detained the carrier after it said the ship did not respond to distress calls and closed the transmitter and receiver after it hit a fishing boat.

But Britain said there was no evidence of the collision and that the tanker was in Omani waters and the receiver was working.

Hunt on Sunday held talks with his French and German counterparts, who agreed that "the security of passage of ships from the Strait of Hormuz is an absolute priority for European countries," according to the British Foreign Office.

The European Union expressed "deep concern" over the move, and on Monday German Foreign Minister Haikou Mas said: "We do not want further escalation."

There have been a number of attacks on tankers in the Strait of Hormuz since May when the United States strengthened its military presence in response to what it called signs of a "strong threat" from Iran.
