And i think this was the last deployment of HMS manchester before going to breakers in the sky....
On 21st February 2011, Manchester sailed into her home port of HMNB Devonport where she awaits her de-commissioning ceremony on the 24th of February 2011.

Maybe they weren't paying attention in class when the subject of bungs was being covered
I reckon they forgot to put the drain bung in due to the excitement. It was laughable them having to escort the crew all the way home. Seeing as they found the drugs they should have sunk the boat and taken the crew onboard to drop them off later.
