A SUBMARINE twinned with Rugby returned home to Plymouth after ten months at sea yesterday (Wednesday).

The arrival marks the end of a long patrol at sea for the Royal Navy’s attack submarine HMS Tireless and family and friends are expected to welcome it home.

A link between the boat and the town was established through English Electric which produced steam turbines for submarines from its Rugby factory.
