Excellent set of images James 😊

Depending on who you believe and how it's calculated the British isles coastline is between 5.000 _ 11,000 miles, I tend to think nearer the lower figure if you only include England , Scotland & Isles and Northern Island , Isle of White & Isle of Man with the Scilly Isles that would be approximately 7,500 miles ?
They have their work cut out for sure, but they do get a bit of help from the RAF 😊

Thanks Alfie.
I think your estimate is probably a bit low. The Ordnance Survey figure is a smidge over 11,000 miles - but as the British Cartographic Society so rightly say " depends!".

The RAF are always too quick for me. By the time I hear them they're gone! or at least would only appear as a speck Wink
They do a grand job too though as do the Coast Guard.

Great shot. A question:what flag is she flying? I thought that UK Navel vessels flew the white ensign . . . but that one is blue. Is this a Royal Naval vessel?

Thank you George.

The Border Force is part of the Home Office not the Royal Navy so, like the Police, fly a Blue Ensign.

Quote GOV.UK
"Border Force is a law enforcement command within the Home Office. We secure the UK border by carrying out immigration and customs controls for people and goods entering the UK."
