The Ministry of Defence has said the aircraft carrier was due to return for planned maintenance later this week but returned earlier as a "precautionary measure".

The department said in its statement on Monday: "Following a minor issue with an internal system on HMS Queen Elizabeth, the ship's company were required to remove a small volume of water from the ship.

"An investigation into the cause is under way."

This latest problem follows a number of other issues including a shaft seal leak which caused water to pour into the ship, and the accidental trigger of the sprinklers in the hangar.

Community in shock as boy, 10, drowns at a house in Carlingford, Co Louth.
It is the third time in just two weeks that the county has been struck by tragedy . On June 28, Jill Amante died after getting into difficulty while swimming at Seapoint Beach near Drogheda. The 14-year-old was remembered as a “bright, exuberant” girl. And just last weekend, seven-year-old Chantelle Keenan died after a car parked in a driveway in Drogheda rolled over her. It is understood a number of children were at the tragic scene.
