The frigate, HMS St Albans, departed on December 23 to shadow the new Russian warship Admiral Gorshkov as it moved through the North Sea.

The Royal Navy vessel monitored the Russian ship over Christmas and will return to dock in Portsmouth later on Tuesday.

UK Defence Minister Gavin Williamson said in a statement after the incident that he would “not hesitate in defending our waters or tolerate any form of aggression”.

He said: “I will not hesitate in defending our waters or tolerate any form of aggression.

“Britain will never be intimidated when it comes to protecting our country, our people, and our national interests.”

Chris Ansell, the Commanding Officer of HMS St Albans, said it was his crew’s duty to keep Britain safe.

He added: “My ship’s company take great pride in Great Britain and the role they play dealing with both the routine and unexpected.

“Missing parts of Christmas and New Year with our families is never easy, but it is absolutely required as part of our duty to keep Britain safe all year round.

“There is a pressing need to protect UK interests close to home, in the air, above and below the waves.”
