Navy warship built on River Clyde

The first of three Royal Navy advanced warships being built on the River Clyde has been unveiled at BAE's Scotstoun yard, where it will be finished and tested.

HMS Forth is part of a £348m contract to build patrol vessels to support counter-terrorism, counter-piracy and anti-smuggling operations.

It is the first complex warship to be fully assembled at Glasgow since Type 45 destroyer HMS Duncan in 2010.

The ships are being built at the company's yards at Scotstoun and Govan.

HMS Forth will be ready in 2017, with the other ships to be named HMS Medway and HMS Trent.
