£3m I think was the cost to get her back to the UK. I think she had just come out of an extended refit and the RN might not have wanted any other dockyard to do the work ( too many new tech toys for the spooks perhaps )

Wasn't there was another Type 42 brought back on a heavy lift ship from the Gulf. I vaguely remember being told a Type 42 was T boned by an oil tanker?
