Royal Navy crew trains on aircraft carrier simulator

Four years before the Royal Navy's new aircraft carriers arrive in Portsmouth, sailors are being trained to operate the ships.

A simulator and operations room has been created at HMS Collingwood in Fareham to train crew to steer the 65,000 tonne HMS Queen Elizabeth and test the computer equipment that will be on board.

Part of the ship has also been recreated at BAE Systems on the Isle of Wight to test the radar and radio systems.
