Britain's biggest aircraft carrier, HMS Prince of Wales, is in Gibraltar for a few days for a logistics visit, its first outside the UK.

For some of the newest sailors on board this is their first run ashore other than Portsmouth.

The 65,000-tonne ship, which spent the spring and summer on sea trials off southern England, arrived in Gibraltar on Tuesday and is due to leave on Saturday.
