Captain 'sad' at Ark Royal scrapping

A former captain of the Ark Royal has said he is sad to see the ship towed away to be scrapped.

The aircraft carrier, once the flagship of the Royal Navy, left Portsmouth earlier bound for Turkey, where it will be broken up.

Sir Alan Massey said he felt enormous pride to have been at the helm of such a famous ship.
