Investigation into lewd films made on USS Enterprise

The US Navy says it is investigating the production of lewd videos aboard a US aircraft carrier which have turned the spotlight on a veteran commander.

Capt Owen Honors, who was the USS Enterprise's second-in-command when the videos were made, is a key feature in the footage. He now commands the ship, which is based at Norfolk, Virginia.

The videos were apparently made in 2006 and 2007, with footage containing gay slurs and suggestive shower scenes.
