HMS Grimsby Returns from Deployment

The Royal Navy minesweeper 'HMS Grimsby' returned from operational deployment early this morning.

She went alongside the 'SD Northern River' for about an hour while families of the crew arrived and embarked to meet their loved ones.

She then departed and made the trip across the river and carried on up to Faslane Naval Base in the Gareloch.

It was good to see that the families can enjoy their Christmas together.
