Her Commanding Officer, Commander Angus Essenhigh said: "The ship's company has achieved a huge amount in the nine months we've been away and they are rightly proud of their achievements.

We have worked closely with many navies in support of shared global challenges, but perhaps our most significant contribution was in the delivery of relief to the people of the Philippines following the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan.

Right now we are all looking forward to being reunited with our loved ones and enjoying a well-earned rest."
