HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier naming ceremony

A new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth is being officially named by the Queen at a ceremony in Fife's Rosyth dockyard.

It will be the largest warship built in the UK.

The Queen will smash a bottle of whisky on the hull of the 65,000-tonne HMS Queen Elizabeth - the first of two new Royal Navy aircraft carriers being built.

PM David Cameron and First Minister Alex Salmond are both attending.
