      London sends third warship to Gulf

      A third British warship is heading to the Gulf, the Royal Navy announced on Saturday. Britain has already sent the HMS Kent to cover for frigate HMS Montrose while it undergoes maintenance in nearby Bahrain, and is now redirecting the Type 45 destroyer HMS Defender from its mission to the Pacific. "Wherever the red ensign flies around the world, the UK stands by to protect freedom of navigation whenever is it tested," Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said, cited by AFP.
