Stunning aerial images shows the Atlantic Sea leaving Liverpool

Liverpool FC Kit Launch with manufacturer New Balance at Anfield, Liverpool.

The Atlantic sea was the first ship in over 50 years to be christened by a member of the royal family in Liverpool.

The HMS Devonshire in 1956 was the last ship to be christened by a member of the royal family.

The Atlantic sea was given a big send off tonight as the pier head lit up with fireworks to see the ship off on the next stage of its journey.

Regular contributor @stephen07708 sent us these amazing aerial images of the ship leaving Liverpool.
