Royal Yacht Britannia's leaking door fixed

A door seal that leaked and left the Royal Yacht Britannia tilting was fixed, officials have confirmed. Fire crews in Edinburgh were called to the ship last Friday after it started taking on water and listing on its starboard side.

It happened during an operation to move the vessel, for the first time in 14 years, to a dry dock for painting.

The water was pumped from the ship and it was moved, several hours later, to the dry dock in the Port of Leith.
