Royal Navy taskforce sets sail ahead of Gibraltar visit – BBC News

A Royal Navy deployment, which will include a stop at Gibraltar, will leave UK ports over the next few days, amid tensions between Spain and the UK.

A warship is due to dock at the British territory within a week, a deployment described by the MoD as “long-planned”.

It comes as increased vehicle checks at the Spanish border have led to delays.

The Spanish government said it is considering taking the dispute to the UN Security Council where it could seek the support of Argentina.
