Have your say

THE DREAM to turn HMS Hermes into a luxury hotel has been shattered.

And now she will be heading her way to the scrap yard.

It’s never easy seeing a warship with great history come to the end of her time.

Got some images of the ship yourself? We’d love to see them. Send them to us via our Facebook page or tweet us @portsmouthnews
