    Royal Navy retains patrol ships for Fishery Protection in post Brexit scenario

    OPVs will be retained for at least the next two years to bolster the UK’s ability to protect our fishing fleet as well as our shores

    UK Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson has secured the protection of British home waters by announcing he will retain three of the Royal Navy’s patrol ships. The future of the Batch 1 Offshore Patrols Vessels (OPVs), HMS Tyne, HMS Mersey and HMS Severn, which currently support the Fishery Protection Squadron, have been secured ahead of the Brexit negotiations for Britain to withdraw from the European Union.
