Newcastle’s affiliated warship, HMS Dauntless, has berthed at North Shields for a weekend of events on Tyneside. The 152m long Type 45 destroyer vessel joined the Royal Navy fleet in November 2010 and is visiting Newcastle, her affiliated city. The public will get the chance to have a look around on Sunday when there will also be a parade.
The Royal Navy had to apologise after hundreds of visitors were turned away from an open day in Great Yarmouth after the event was “hugely oversubscribed”.
We’ve added a couple of videos about the visit to our YouTube page here.
