Ark Royal leaves London

Watch video of the 20,000-tonne aircraft carrier arriving in the capital

HMS Ark Royal leaves the capital today after a week in London helping commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Falklands conflict.

The aircraft carrier arrived in London on 13 June, and moored between two buoys off Greenwich Pier.

The 20,000-tonne aircraft carrier has just completed a multi-national joint training exercise in the Baltic Sea, after undergoing an £18m refit.

She will now begin preparing for her role as the NATO High Readiness Force Command Platform, effectively the on-call NATO flagship, which is expected to begin in late summer.
