Your pictures of HMS Ocean's last-ever visit to Sunderland

Sunderland folk have been flocking to see the city's adopted warship, HMS Ocean, as she pays her last visit before being taken out of service.

The helicopter carrier, which is the Royal Navy’s flagship vessel, is to be replaced by £3.5billion supership HMS Queen Elizabeth.
