Royal Navy minesweeper HMS Ledbury has been visiting Sark and Alderney.

The 60m (196ft) vessel, which was commissioned in 1981, arrived in Sark on Friday morning.

After a presentation to Sark officials, a football match took place between the 43-strong crew of sailors and the island side.

Twelve children from Sark were on board for the ship's trip on Saturday to Alderney where the crew made a presentation to the island's States.
