HMS Portland is back on duty protecting the UK coastline.

The Royal Navy Frigate and its crew have been training for frontline duties.

The Warship is one of the Navy's newest and fastest on the water. For the next few months it's tasked with patrolling the coast and responding to any major emergencies at 24 hours notice.

The crew have been training for their new role for 7 months and the ship has undergone a 27 million pound refit too.

Now HMS Portland is capable of any frontline tasking worldwide, from war to humanitarian operations.
