The Port of Tyne website had the arrival down as "Royal Navy" to berth at Northumbrian Quay. Went along to witness the arrival of our surface fleet - is she the only ship left after the cuts?

One of the privately owned RN Patrol Boats. Built by VT Marine who have now been taken over by Babcock. The Company have a Contract to provide the Patrol Boats to the RN and to maintain them, with a guaranteed number of 'serviceable' days per year.
She even has an IMO Number welded on the aft end of the superstructure and a port of registry painted on the stern.
