A Dutch naval submarine will be moored in the waters of South Quay until Friday, as troops enjoy a good will mission.
Police confirmed that the Walrus-class vessel, named HM Bruinvis, was holding a medal ceremony today, Wednesday, and arrived at its temporary home yesterday.

It will remain until the early hours of Friday morning.
A spokesperson for Canary Wharf Group said: “It has been 15 years since we have had a submarine here, so it is quite rare.
“We do get naval vessels from time-to-time but it is unusual to get a submarine.”
