TWO giant sections of the Royal Navy’s second new aircraft carrier have sailed from Portsmouth.

The first blocks of HMS Prince of Wales left the city and are on their way to Rosyth where the now-vacated dock will be immediately put back into use for the construction of the warship.

HMS Queen Elizabeth, the first ship, was floated last week.
