The Plymouth-based submarine HMS Triumph has returned after 11 months at sea.

The Trafalgar-class vessel arrived at HM Naval Base Devonport at about 14:30 BST.

The submarine had been patrolling the coast of Libya and was involved in training patrols in the Gulf as part of its deployment.

During the tour, the crew also raised nearly £6,000 for the Brian House Children's Hospice in Blackpool.

HMS Triumph was launched 1991 and has a typical crew of 130 personnel. Its motto is We Shall Triumph.
