HMS Brocklesby returns from Libya mission

Ministry of Defence said:
Royal Navy minehunter HMS Brocklesby was given a hero's welcome by friends and family yesterday as she returned to Portsmouth Naval Base after five months supporting operations against Libya from the Mediterranean.

Surely you meant .."returns from Libya to be scrapped"?
[Serious hat on]

Not quite yet although her Hunt Class sister ships Berkeley and Bicester have been sold to Greece while Cottesmore and Dulverton have been sold to Lithuania. Class leader Brecon has been stripped of her equipment and is used as a training ship at HMS Raleigh. The remaining eight are soldiering on with two or three in refit, two working up in home waters, two permanently stationed in the Gulf and one normally assigned to Standing NATO MCM Group 1.
