UK Navy destroyer warship HMS York is approaching completion of a five-month deployment to the southern oceans.

During the deployment, the Type 42 destroyer completed humanitarian rescue operations in Libya and visited the Falklands for routine patrols.

The frigate completed replenishment-at-sea of 350,000l of fuel with two Chilean vessels.

HMS York engaged in discussion with the Peruvian Naval Academy about drug-running at sea, before reaching the Jamaican capital of Kingston.

The warship will return to Portsmouth, UK, in July.
