Watch: 24 hours on HMS Queen Elizabeth below decks

HMS Queen Elizabeth has been waving the flag for Britain around the world on her maiden deployment, leading the Carrier Strike Group (CSG21).

Since the Royal Navy's flagship set sail on the mission in May, she’s travelled more than 40,800 nautical miles, through 10 different time zones.

But what is it like living on the 65,000-tonne aircraft carrier, described as "a floating city"?

The ship is 280m long and 70m wide and boasts a number of amenities, including a coffee shop, supermarket and four gyms.

Forces News was given a detailed tour around the ship, including taking a look at its accommodation and messes, as it docked in Oman.
