Jeremy flew on board the Portsmouth-based ship Westminsternear Stavanger by the ship’s Lynx helicopter – which he was quite taken withand had it pegged for top spot on the Top Gear ‘cool wall’.
On returning to the UK the presenter was quick to post a shoton Twitter – describing sailing up the fjords on a Type 23 as “the best way toarrive in Norway”.
