Scuppered! Britain's £3.1bn aircraft carrier HMS Prince of Wales has a 3ft water leak in its engine room — its second deluge in the past five months

* HMS Prince of Wales suffered a leak in the £3.1-billion vessel's engine room
* It is the second time the new aircraft carrer has suffered a leak this year
* Members of the ship's crew filmed the water cascading into the compartment
* None of the vessel's crew were injured

Britain's newest aircraft carrier flooded to the depth of 3ft after a water leak in the engine room.

It is the second time HMS Prince of Wales – a £3.1billion state-of-the-art ship – has flooded in the past five months.

Footage filmed by crew members showed water gushing down the stairs and submerging electrical cabinets and pipes.

A water leak led to three feet of flooding on board HMS Prince of Wales, pictured, though none of the ship's crew were injured

One of the sailors can be heard saying: 'That's deep. Oh s***. That's one metre above the floor.' Navy sources confirmed that the water was at least 3ft deep at one point and flooded an engine compartment. Nobody was hurt in the incident and the Royal Navy is investigating the precise cause of the leak.

An internal system developed a fault causing the flood on board the 65,000-ton warship while it was at its home port of Portsmouth Naval Base on Thursday.

It is the second time that the warship has developed a leak. In May a video emerged of water pouring through the ceiling into an accommodation area.

It is understood that most of the water from the recent leak has now been removed and put into a holding tank before it is pumped off into a barge. A Royal Navy spokesman said that an investigation had been launched into the leak but said the extent of any damage was still being assessed.

I bet it was built using a diverse workforce.

Let's face it the Brits like to cut corners in executing engineering designs. Think old Jaguar, Triumph, MG and a host of others that were well poorly executed, great fun cars but not reliable.

Let us here in America give you a quick fix, for example; financial troubles, we just print more money (DUH) and the problem goes away (DEFERRED).

So with the leaking British warship we'll fix her right up at a low cost, let Phil tell you how......

Water proof the electricals with WD-40 or drive water out with WD-40.

Must be sent to dry dock asap or the thing will be a write-off.

a 3' leak is a bigger deal than a scratch in the paint. Whatever caused this leak could cause 100 more. Or it could have just been a leaky seacock pipe......

It's a leak from a pipe "internal systems", no more details than that but sounds like the same problem QE had last year on sea trials.

Those things are incredibly difficult to operate and most of the time the operators (machinest mates) hardly have a clue as to what they're doing, usually operating on little sleep and little real world training with the systems at hand.

IOW. Someone probably left a coolant water valve open accidentally.

And/or a pump was accidentally left on or off when it shouldn't have been during shutdown procedures.
