Warship HMS Argyll returns home

The Royal Navy warship HMS Argyll has returned to Britain after a six month tour of duty in the Middle East.

A military band played as the vessel sailed into Plymouth's Devonport naval base and families lined the quayside to welcome back the crew.

During her deployment HMS Argyll spent more than 50 continuous days at sea carrying out patrols as part of the Coalition taskforce in Iraq.

She also took part in operations in the Arabian Sea and off East Africa.
