A jetty for the Royal Navy's new aircraft carriers in Portsmouth has been officially named by Princess Anne.

The Princess Royal Jetty has been strengthened to accommodate the 65,000-tonne Queen Elizabeth class carriers.

Princess Anne, who is the Commodore-in-Chief of HM Naval Base Portsmouth, took a tour of the jetty before officially unveiling its new name.
