A NATO fleet of mine  hunters yesterday docked in Palma at the end of a Spanish-led exercise off the south coast.

Palma.—The Royal Navy’s mine hunter HMS Grimsby took part in the exercise  yesterday, she  came to the end of a mine hunting exercise led by the Spanish which saw her hunt dummy mines while coming under a variety of attack scenarios.
The Royal Navy mine hunter represents the UK’s commitment to the Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group 2 (SNMCMG2) in the Mediterranean - and she regularly exercises her skills with her NATO counterparts.
For the Spanish mine hunting exercise the NATO mine hunting fleet from Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Spain and Turkey, as well as an Italian frigate, worked out of Cartagena in the area of La Manga.
