Dutch navy ship HNLMS Rotterdam arrives in Greenwich

The HNLMS Rotterdam has arrived in London and is berthed off the Thames in Greenwich.

The ship has been in service for 25 years, with probably the best known event the crew and vessel being involved in was during 2012 when it sank pirate ship off the coast of east Africa after coming under attack. The ship rescued many on board who jumped into the sea.

The vessel can carry up to 611 marines, 6 helicopters and up to 32 tanks.

It has one helicopter on board for its trip to the capital.
