F126 'HMS Plymouth' Alfred lock 20th August 2014
F126 'HMS Plymouth' leaves Birkenhead destined for scrap at Aliang, Turkey. Once preserved, the vessel has languished at Birkenhead since 2006. Despite the best efforts of the HMS Plymouth Association, time literally ran out for them and Peel finally decided to move her out for scrap early Wednesday morning.
