AN iconic Royal Navy ship has returned to the Clyde after a Baltic Sea voyage.

HMS Ramsey - a Sandown Class mine hunter - arrived back at HM Naval Base Clyde after a NATO deployment.

The vessel left Faslane in May, stopping at Rosyth and Copenhagen, before joining up with the Standing NATO Mine Counter Measures Group 1.

The group, which included vessels and personnel from Danish, German, Estonian and Norwegian navies, worked together to clear historic ordnance off the coast of Estonia.

Lieutenant Commander Joel Roberts, commanding officer of HMS Ramsey, said: "This has been a short yet excellent deployment for HMS Ramsey and her ship’s company."
