Royal Navy Surveys Mersey for Mines

The Royal Navy’s minehunters HMS Brocklesby and the Sandown class HMS Grimsby were in the Mersey at the end of last year, surveying the river as part of a an anti-terrorist planning operation. The project is part of a UK-wide survey of the country’s harbours and approaches and survey information will update a database that will be used if any future operation needs to clear seaways and maritime infrastructure.

A video of the activity in the Mersey is available on the BBC website
