Royal Yacht Britannia listing after door leak

Emergency services are trying to pump water out of the Royal Yacht Britannia after it started listing while it was being moved to have its hull repainted.

The yacht is tilting on its starboard side after developing a leak in a door seal.

Group commander Graham Inglis, Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service, told the BBC that the team are pumping water from starboard to port to bring Britannia up to a vertical position.
