The Royal Navy monitored four Russian ships, including a destroyer, as they sheltered in the Moray Firth from rough weather this week.

Patrol ship HMS Tyne shadowed two warships and an intelligence-gathering vessel as they carried out replenishment operations with their supporting tanker.

The latest incident comes after a separate operation in the area a few weeks ago when HMS Tyne monitored two other Russian ships which were sheltering from bad weather.
