HMS Shoreham has arrived in her namesake harbour for a busy four-day visit with the captain pledging to "strengthen close bonds" between ship and town.

The Royal Navy minehunter moored at Power Station Wharf and the commanding officer and ship’s company were soon meeting the local community.

One of the first ports of call on dry land was a reception hosted by Adur District Council Vice-Chairman Joss Loader at the Shoreham Centre.

Other events on the schedule include conducting pre-arranged tours of the ship, hosting an on-board lunch and evening reception for local guests and attending an evening organised by the Shoreham Royal British Legion.
