SLEEK and grey, HMS St Albans slips through the Thames Barrier on a foggy afternoon in the nation’s capital.

The Type 23 frigate has been in London to host a series of events and guests.

She set sail yesterday morning for the ship’s company to continue their work.

Commander Catherine Jordan, the Portsmouth-based ship’s commanding officer, said: ‘We have really enjoyed our visit to London. It was extremely successful and gave our guests the chance to see a Royal Navy warship and explore what it can do, particularly in an operational capacity.

‘It was also a fantastic opportunity for the ship’s company to show off their ship and meet people from across a number of different sectors including apprenticeship training and the Inspiring Women Campaign.’
