NW Evening Mail:

"Submariners onboard HMS Trenchant have returned from a successful operation in the North Pole.

Admiral Sir Philip Jones, the First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval Staff, posted pictures on Twitter congratulating the crew as he hailed the Royal Navy's capabilities.

He said: "HMS Trenchant has just returned from the North Pole. Very few navies have the ability to operate nuclear submarines, even fewer can do so under the polar ice."

HMS Trenchant's crew has been taking part in ICEX 18 - a joint excercise with the Americans and Canadians to demonstrate submarine combat readiness for Arctic Operations."
