    Twelve hurt as Navy crane topples
    A crane driver is trapped and 12 people have been injured after a crane crashed onto the deck of an aircraft carrier in Portsmouth harbour.

    The incident, involving HMS Invincible, happened on Tuesday morning.

    Of the 12 injured, 10 are naval personnel and two are contractors, a Ministry of Defence spokesman said.

    The crane, operated by Fleet Supoort Limited, was trying to lift a cherry picker off the flight deck. Ferries are being told to avoid the area.
