LOOKING ship-shape as a Royal Navy mine hunter sailed into Hartlepool last night.

HMS Hurworth docked in the town for a five day visit to the North-East.

A number of youth groups and organisations will get chance to look around the ship over the next few days.

And people will get a taste of life on the ocean wave when the ship opens its gangway to visitors from 10am to 4pm tomorrow.

The 180ft-long vessel carries a crew of 45.
