Ark Royal sets sail on final journey to scrapyard
The Royal Navy's former flagship, the Ark Royal, leaves Portsmouth on Monday for the final time, bound for a scrapyard in Turkey.
Harrier jets that flew from the Ark Royal played a key role in the Balkan conflict in the early 1990s.
The aircraft carrier was decommissioned following the defence review in 2010.
