Rehearsal of ship arrival delayed due to fog

A United States Navy cargo ship was due to be the first vessel to moor at the jetty that HMS Queen Elizabeth will call home.

Thick fog this morning meant she had to anchor outside the harbour, delaying an exercise to test staff and the equipment they'll use.

As Richard Jones reports.

Richard spoke to Chris Alcock from BAE Systems and Commodore Jeremy Rigby, Naval Base Commander.

An unexploded Second World War bomb which was dredged up from the bottom of Portsmouth Harbour this morning has been safely detonated at sea.

The entrance to Portsmouth Harbour was closed until around 7:30am this morning after the discovery of the German SC250 bomb.

It was found at the head of a barge dredging the harbour which is part of ongoing preparations taking place for the arrival of the Royal Navy's new 65,000 tonne aircraft carrier.

Divers from the Southern Diving Unit 2 towed the bomb away from the harbour, lowered it to the seabed and planted explosive charges to begin a controlled detonation.

Shortly after 11am today it was destroyed in a plume of smoke and spray.
