RFA Lyme Bay Chips in

British naval vessel RFA Lyme Bay anchored off Hog Sty Bay during the ship's visit to Grand Cayman.

A British ship to the rescue of a storm-ravaged regional island, the last top government employee for financial year 2014-2015 and a visit to a reception to celebrate an attractive art exhibit take top billing on CIG TV today (Thursday, 10th September 2015).

First, the recent visitor to Grand Cayman, naval vessel RFA Lyme Bay is featured for coming to the aid of Dominica ravaged by the recent Tropical Storm Erika. The ship provided humanitarian and disaster relief from the supplies it carried including, two tonnes of food such as freshly cooked hot meals in the ship's galley and drinking water produced by the ship's onboard reverse osmosis plant. The crew ensured residents in the hard hit remotest parts were helped. Get more details in today's segment.
