The Royal Navy has apologised after hundreds of visitors were turned away from an open day aboard a warship that docked in Great Yarmouth for the weekend.

The volume of people wanting to look around NHS Dauntless was so high people had to be turned away, while others queued for four hours before getting on.

A Navy spokeswoman said they will consider ticketing any future visits. The ship left the outer harbour this morning.
