The first female commander of a major British Royal Navy warship has been removed from her post, following allegations of an affair with one of her officers. Commander Sarah West, 42, took charge of Type 23 frigate HMS Portland in May 2012, but left her vessel last month. A Royal Navy spokesman said Commander West had now been “removed from command,” but gave no further details saying it was an “internal matter”. Commander West had been on board Plymouth-based HMS Portland on a deployment since January.
