THE Royal Navy’s three fishery protection vessels took a short break from policing the UK’s waters to unite for a joint exercise.

HMS Mersey, HMS Severn and HMS Tyne usually conduct individual patrols to protect the nation’s fish stocks.

But the Portsmouth-based ships came together for their annual squadron exercise in the Solent.

The two-day exercise included Severn directing her sister ships into a co-ordinated anchorage in the Solent and Mersey leading on a series of manoeuvres where all three ships moved perfectly in time at set distances from each other.
