HMS Richmond will return home to Portsmouth on Friday morning following a £20m upgrade.

The Type 23 frigate has been in Devonport, Plymouth, since October last year for a refit which will see her return to the fleet as one of the navy’s most potent warships, a spokesman said.

The work included improvements to several weapons, including the Seawolf missile system, two automatic 30mm small calibre guns, and a new command system.
