A group of drunk students who dressed up as pirates and hijacked an oil tanker off the coast of Somalia are said to be in "big trouble" when they return to lessons.

The students from Grimsby University, were celebrating International Pirate Day aboard a schooner in the Indian Ocean dressed in full pirate costumes. It is thought they were carried away with the moment and had consumed a large quantity of rum when they decided to board the passing oil tanker, the Sirius Star. Crew aboard the vessel were made to walk the plank and the buccaneers redirected the tanker to the nearest port with rum.

The US Navy has threatened to recapture the ship. Johnny Depp has been approached about a plan to trick the pirate-loving students into giving themselves up peacefully.
