Internet sensation HMS Ocean returns home to Plymouth

The largest vessel in the Royal Navy, helicopter carrier HMS Ocean, has returned to its Plymouth base.

The ship has arrived back at Devonport Naval Base after a seven-and-a-half-month deployment which saw it sent to Libya to support the United Nations.

Hundreds of friends and family lined the dockside to welcome them home.

The crew recently became an internet sensation after making a Christmas video miming to Mariah Carey's 1994 hit All I Want for Christmas Is You.

The BBC's Defence Correspondent Jonathan Beale reports from on-board HMS Ocean.
