VIDEO: Royal Navy technician’s Christmas message for family in Boston

There will be no relaxing in front of the TV for one Boston man this Christmas – as he will be at sea on HMS Edinburgh.

Royal Navy engineering technician Luke Fowler will be in the midst of a six-month tour of duty in the South Atlantic while others are tucking into their festive fare at home.

But the 22-year-old will be with his family in York Street in some way, as he recorded a special message for them.

He said: “I’m very much a Christmas man, so spending it away from them will be hard, but we’re all away from our families so we’ll do our best to get some Christmas cheer going.”

He added that he will also call his family on the day.
