Gosport welcomes HMS Queen Elizabeth.

Crowds lined Gosport Waterfront to welcome HMS Queen Elizabeth as she arrived in Portsmouth for the first time on the morning of Wednesday 16th August. Many were in place by 0530 with children still in pyjamas, dogs on leads and thousands of iPhones. There was a big cheer and much waving as the new £3bn aircraft carrier arrived in her home port on time at 0710 BST.
