The crew of Plymouth-based warship HMS Monmouth have been awarded the Royal Navy Intelligence Trophy.

HMS Monmouth and her intelligence team were honoured for their contribution to maritime security and intelligence collection.

The award recognised their efforts made during their deployment in 2007.

The team played a pivotal role during the ship's worldwide deployment, Cdr Tony Long, HMS Monmouth's commanding officer, said.

He said: "The gaining of good quality intelligence is vital to me.

"It is a significant factor in how, and when, I decide to fight or defend my ship.

"I am very pleased to have a team capable of reaching the high standards needed to win this trophy."
