The leader of Portsmouth City Council has urged ministers to back a plan to turn the wardroom at HMS Nelson into a new Portsmouth Maritime Academy.

Councillor Gerald Vernon-Jackson has written to the government to call for the facility to be opened at the wardroom in Queen Street, Portsea.

It comes in the wake of the closure of BAE Systems’ shipbuilding operations in the city.
