THE longest deployment by a Royal Navy vessel in recent times came to a rapturous conclusion today as HMS Enterprise returned to Plymouth after three years away. No ship in the modern history of the RN has saved more lives – 9,180 alone during counter-people-smuggling operations in the Mediterranean – than the survey ship, which also helped people flee unrest in Libya, sank 117 craft used by traffickers, scanned shipwrecks and called in at 20 countries since leaving home back in 2014.
