Portsmouth-based HMS Diamond (pictured right) and a Wildcat helicopter from RNAS Yeovilton were dispatched to follow the Russsian underwater reconnaissance ship Yantar (left) after it approached the UK coast. A Navy spokesman said: ‘HMS Diamond met up with Yantar and will continue to monitor the vessel’s movements and activities as it continues north.’ Commander Ben Keith, commanding officer of the Type 45 destroyer, said: ‘HMS Diamond is proud to be doing her part to protect the UK area of interest by monitoring the Russian vessel Yantar on her transit. This is routine business for the Royal Navy and my ship’s company are well trained and ready at short notice to deploy for such tasking.’
