Cornwall commander moved or removed?

Commander Jeremy Woods, captain of the frigate HMS Cornwall which last year was at the centre of an embarrassing international incident when 15 of the frigate's sailors and marines were captured by the Iranians, has been removed from command. He has been moved "to a post where his talents and experience can be used to best effect" in fact, whatever that means. Whether his reappointment is due to the incident or not is unknown, of course the MOD are denying it and the media will no doubt try their best to link the two. Cornwall is currently involved in sea training and will have a new commander appointed soon.
