HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH is undergoing a programme of sea trials to find any teething problems and rectifying them. Sea trials will continue as scheduled in the New Year. There has been no damage caused to the ship by the leak. Any costs to repair it will be borne by the Aircraft Carrier Alliance and there will be no additional cost to the British taxpayer.
