More than 100 people have tested positive for Covid-19, after an outbreak at sea.

The UK's newest aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth is among the ships affected - it's about a quarter of the way through a 28-week deployment.

The British defence secretary says there are no current plans to re-think its voyage.

A number of crew members on four accompanying British ships also caught Covid.
