HMS Prince of Wales completes repairs

HMS Prince of Wales, which broke down last August and was taken to Babcock, is ready to resume duties after completing nine months of repairs expected to cost about £25 million.

The Royal Navy’s future flagship broke down off the Isle of Wight 11 months ago as she set sail from Portsmouth Naval Base for a deployment to the US.

The £3 billion aircraft carrier was moved out of dry dock at Roysth shipyard on 21 July and into the River Forth, and once at anchor in deeper water, she will head under the Forth bridges and to Portsmouth.

Since leaving the dry dock on Friday, the 65,000-tonne vessel has been going through propulsion trials in the Forth, and was expected to leave on 25 July.
