Devonport Warship Completes Olympic Security Op
3:23pm 6th September 2012
An Olympic security operation led by a Devonport warship has been hailed a success.
HMS Bulwark has been keeping an eye on sailing events off the Dorset coast and our borders.
She housed the Navy, staff from Dorset Police, the Coastguard, Border Agency and LOCOG.
Captain Alex Burton has praised the crew. He said: "Well, I've chatted to some of the ship's company and said, 'look guys, if you could go to Hyde Park, and go to the Olympic Village and watch the Olympics or be here, providing that security, so Team GB can rule the world, which would you choose?' and they said 'hey, we wouldn't have missed this for the world'."
Superintendent Charlie Eggar admitted crews will be sad to say goodbye. He said: "It truly has been a joint plan, which has been put together by all the agencies, agreed by all the agencies and delivered by all the agencies. I'm extremely proud of the team that are on HMS Bulwark."
