A new Royal Navy vessel which will be completed on the Clyde has started its journey from a rival yard on Tyneside.
The ship will be completed at a yard on the Clyde
The Lyme Bay was being built at the Swan Hunter yard, Tyneside, but the Minstry of Defence said delays and rising costs had been unnacceptable.
It is being towed to Govan for completion by BAE Systems. The journey will take about five days.
Around 300 jobs are to go on Tyneside but BAE said the extra work would not mean new jobs on the Clyde.
