RRS Sir David Attenborough to leave shipyard

The UK’s most advanced polar research vessel – the RRS Sir David Attenborough – is set to leave its shipyard on Wednesday to begin technical sea trials before commencing service in a year’s time. The ship is to sail from the Cammell Laird shipyard across the Mersey to the Liverpool cruise terminal at high tide for crew familiarisation, before two weeks of technical trials off the coast of North Wales.
