A PHOTOGRAPHER on a police helicopter could not resist capturing this picture of HMS Illustrious in the sun.

The Portsmouth-based ship was snapped by the Met’s Air Support Unit on the River Thames on Saturday.

The ship’s company were in London for a memorial service to commemorate the Battle of the Atlantic on Friday along with sailors from HMS Edinburgh.
