HMS Tyne left Portsmouth 18 hours ago and in Plymouth today carrying on with the ship’s ‘regeneration’ after a successful (BOST) Basic Offshore Safety Training exercises in April.

The vessel is one of The Royal Navy’s busiest ships and the first of the original generation of River Class ships, and been serving the nation since the summer of 2003.

Aside from her day-to-day fishery protection duties, HMS Tyne has occasionally been called upon to undertake escort roles in the UK Area of Interest, and two such examples occurred in the autumn of 2016 when she was twice assigned to escort Russian warships through the English Channel.

The ship is affiliated with the borough of North Tyneside, and based in Portsmouth.
