Destroyer drops into Gibraltar

A BRITISH destroyer has made Gibraltar its latest port of call as it heads to the Suez Canal for a seven month stint on maritime protection duties.

HMS Daring – costing 1.2 billion euros and with a 200-strong crew – will link with a patrol in the Hormuz Strait, currently the focus of tension between Iran and the West.
