Daily Mail: Navy farce: Britain's new £6billion fleet of Type 45 destroyers spend more than TWICE as much time berthed in UK ports than 'out and doing their job'
* Six vessels notched up a staggering 1,515 days in our harbours in a year
* And two-thirds of the ships were stationary for more than 300 days each
* The figures have angered former head of the Royal Navy, Lord West
* Type 45 destroyers cost £1billion and all became on active service in 2013

The six vessels notched up a staggering 1,515 days in our harbours in the year between April 2015 and 2016 - and four of the state-of-the-art ships were stationary for more than 300 days each.
The figures, obtained through a Freedom of Information request, have angered a former head of the Royal Navy, who has called for urgent action by Theresa May to resolve the problem.
