Demonstrators stormed the compound of the British Embassy in Iran, the Foreign Office has confirmed.
The incident happened at 1720 GMT (2050 local time) and reports claimed the occupation lasted for about an hour.
A Foreign Office spokesman said the situation had been resolved and all staff were safe and accounted for.
He could not confirm reports that the demonstrators were protesting against what they see as British support for Israel's air strikes on Gaza.
There were also unconfirmed reports that the demonstrators tore down the British flag and hoisted a Palestinian standard in its place.
