The first female commander of a major Royal Navy warship has left her vessel following an allegation she had an affair with a shipmate.
Commander Sarah West, 42, took charge of Type 23 frigate HMS Portland in May 2012 but is understood to have left the ship amid a Navy investigation.
Her second-in-command has taken over the running of the vessel, though Cdr West remains the Commanding Officer.
