Rare sight: RRS Sir David Attenborough in the waters off Portrush on Monday

While not the legendary naturalist himself, one Sir David Attenborough could be spotted off the north coast on Monday.

As part of ongoing sea trials and mariner training, one of the most advanced polar research vessels, which is named in honour of the veteran wildlife broadcaster, was seen sailing in the waters near Castlerock.

On board was another vessel that may ring a bell for many - the one and only Boaty McBoatface.
