Campaigners from the environmental group Greenpeace have tried to prevent a Russian ship, which they claim is carrying the world's first shipment of oil drilled in Russian Arctic waters, from docking in the Netherlands. The protest comes as many lawmakers in Europe look to diversify the continent's energy supplies away from Russia amid tensions with Moscow over Ukraine. Henry Ridgwell reports from London.
