What is the latest news on the Naval ship "PLYMOUTH", I believe the submarine went back to Barrow,is she to be put on show again at one of the main Naval yards or is she to go to the breakers? Also can anyone tell me what happens to ships bells when the ship goes for scrap?

I heard that the moves to move her to Plymouth have fallen through due to apathy on the Council's behalf and that's she's bound for the breakers but I don't know how true that is.

I used to work at the ships disposal organisation in Portsmouth in the early 80's. At that time the ships bells were either put into storage in the Naval Base trophy store or given to relevent associations/museums.
