All shipshape at Rosyth

LEADING Hand Claire Butler makes sure everything is shipshape as she dons her cap tally band on a new warship.

The 29-year-old was the first crew member on aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth at Fife's Rosyth docks yesterday.

At 65,000 tonnes it is the Royal Navy's largest warship and will be operational in 2020.
