HMS Prince of Wales: investigation into leak

An investigation is underway after a leak on HMS Prince of Wales caused by an ‘internal system’ issue, according to Forces Net.

Personnel on board the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier, which is currently docked in Portsmouth, removed water from a compartment on the ship.

No injuries have been reported.

A Royal Navy spokesperson says: “Following an issue with an internal system in HMS Prince of Wales, the ship’s company removed water from one of the ship’s compartments. No one was injured and an investigation into the cause of the issue is underway.”

The level of damage sustained to HMS Prince of Wales is unknown.

In May, an investigation was carried out on the vessel after a pipe leak caused an ankle-high flood on board.

The project to build the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carriers has cost more than £6bn.
