Royal Navy builds amphibious fleet centre at Devonport

Building work on a new £30m home for the Royal Navy's amphibious fleet is under way at Plymouth's Devonport Dockyard.

The buildings will house landing craft and assault vessels as well as acting as a training base for Royal Marines.

The naval base is already the joint home to 1 Assault Group Royal Marines and the Assault Squadrons.

About 400 Navy and Marine personnel will be based at the centre.
