The Royal Navy nuclear-powered hunter killer submarine HMS Torbay has emerged from Plymouth after being upgraded.

The Trafalgar Class submarine's nuclear power plant has been given a new lease of life.

Her Commanding Officer Cdr Andy Johns said: “Having completed an extensive period of maintenance in Devonport, my Ship’s Company and I are genuinely excited about the prospect of heading out to sea and getting the boat underwater for the first time in over two years.

“With a busy and interesting programme to look forward to this year, we can’t wait to get on with it. 2014 will be the year of Torbay.”

HMS Torbay will shortly return to operational duties, ready to take on the busy schedule of a duty patrol submarine.
