A SPECTACULAR show of Royal Navy and Royal Marines capability will be on display in Helensburgh today and tomorrow.

Residents will get a rare chance to see the Submarine Parachute Assistance Group in action as the first-responders dive from military aircraft into the waters of the Firth of Clyde, along Helensburgh seafront.

Jumps are planned to take place at approximately 5pm and 9.30pm on Monday, July 8, and at 4pm and 7pm on Tuesday, July 9.

The exercise will be dependent on the weather so could be delayed or postponed if conditions are particularly poor.
