RUMOURS on social media that HMS Dragon was being brought back to Portsmouth because of a lack of engineers on board have been quashed by the Royal Navy.

A spokesman for the navy said the ship has been going in and out of Portsmouth Harbour on training exercises and continues to do so.

It comes after The News reported on Wednesday that personnel from the US Coastguard are being brought to the city because of a lack of staff.

A spokesman said the rumours were untrue.
