Royal Yacht Britannia's 60th birthday celebrated

The Royal Yacht Britannia is celebrating its 60th birthday today.

Built in the famous John Brown Shipyard in Clydebank in 1953, the Queen once described Britannia as "the one place I can truly relax".

The two longest serving crew members have returned to the ship to join in celebrations.

Dixie Dean and Norrie Norrell took a look around the boat that has been berthed at Ocean Terminal in Leith since being decommissioned in 1997.
