Last piece of HMS Prince of Wales built in Portsmouth to leave city

Waiting for Video...

THE last piece of Portsmouth’s future aircraft carrier built in the city will leave today.

The second and final piece of HMS Prince of Wales constructed by shipbuilders in Portsmouth passed through a lock in the naval base this morning, before it leaves the harbour this evening.

Workers are gathering in the rain this morning to help smoothly move the block, which took around a week to weld to its barge.

It is expected to leave the harbour gates at around 6pm and is expected to take five days to reach its new Rosyth shipyard home.
