REPORT: End of an era for HMS Edinburgh

While Henry VIII's historic Mary Rose has been making the headlines, it's not the only warship in the news.

The last of the Royal Navy's Type 42 destroyers, HMS Edinburgh, returned to her home base of Portsmouth today for the final time today.

Next week, the 30-year-old ship will be decommissioned, as the Type 42s make way for the new generation of Type 45s.

Our reporter Richard Jones was on board for the ship's final days at sea. He speaks to Chief Petty Officer Steve Edwards, Air Welfare Officer Tom McKay, Able Seaman Katie Hickman and Leading Hand Stuart Goodman.
