Sir David Attenborough new Polar Ship set for sea trials – watch the glorious vessel

Britain’s new polar ship, the Sir David Attenborough, has left her Merseyside construction yard.

Sirens and accompanying tugboats marked the Attenborough’s departure from builder Cammell Laird’s wet dock at Birkenhead.

Four years in the making, the £200m vessel is about to venture out on a series of sea trials.

But her first journey was only a short one – a few hundred metres down-river to Liverpool’s cruise terminal.

She’s going to be tied up there for a few days of final crew training and familiarisation, before then heading off into the Irish Sea.

The Attenborough is going to sail across the north Wales coast to Holyhead, which will be her base for the next year. But she can’t arrive until after the latest Welsh Covid lockdown, which ends on Monday 9 November.
