Life on board 'Syria chemical weapons' warship

An international effort is under way to remove and destroy Syria's most dangerous chemical weapons.

The first consignment of Syrian chemical weapons materials left the country on a Danish ship on Tuesday.

The BBC's Anna Holligan spent time on board Norwegian vessel HNoMS Helge Ingstad, shortly before being removed following a media blackout.

Before she left the frigate, she filmed this piece about what life is like for the crew on board.
