Governor Martyn Roper was happy to meet on Thursday with all the members of the UK MOD Security and Assistance Team (SAT) after their isolation period came to an end.

"I am really grateful for all their work so far liaising with RFA Argus and HMS Medway and the provision of helicopter relief next month, the hurricane/pandemic planning work they’ve been doing, the support for our Regiment recruitment campaign and their assistance around the provision of medical supplies to the Islands. It’s good to have them here to provide reassurance and support at these challenging times," he said.

According to the governor, the team has brought an impressive range of skills to the table including logistics, medical, legal, training, security and planning experience.
