A ROYAL Navy frigate from Portsmouth is today visiting the UK’s ‘capital of culture’.

HMS Iron Duke is making a four-day stopover in Hull.

Hull has close ties with Iron Duke, having presented the Type 23 with the freedom of the city in 1994. To mark this honour, the crew will join a parade tomorrow.
