Angus secondary school pupils have been given a flying visit by Royal Navy helicopters as part of their higher learning.

Arbroath High School is taking part in Maths Weeks Scotland and pupils were delighted to welcome Merlin pilot Lieutenant Morris in Keptie Road.

Lt Morris gave the children a lesson in aviation mathematics before taking off from the playing fields.

Merlins, which are used to hunt submarines or for Commando operations, took part in a flyover to mark the naming of the HMS Prince of Wales at Rosyth Dockyard on Friday.

Their familiar silhouettes had been seen over Fife and Angus in the run-up to the event.

They will now head back to Royal Naval Air Stations Culdrose – the largest helicopter base in Europe – and Yeovilton.
