Dramatic footage of a private security team engaging in a fire fight with Somali pirates trying to hijack a cargo ship has emerged online.

A speedboat can be seen hurtling towards the vessel as a private security contractor wielding a sub-machine gun begins to take aim.

One guard begins by firing warning shots around the boat which can be seen landing just feet away from the speedboat.

After firing dozens of rounds at the speedboat which crashes into the ship’s hull, one contractor can be heard shouting: ‘Where they at, what’s their position?’

As one speedboat careers off in retreat security can be heard calling: ‘Second skip coming in.’
