The captain of the British Royal Navy's prestigious warship HMS Queen Elizabeth has been removed from his command following reports that he misused an official car, according to a media report Friday.
A new commanding officer has been appointed to the aircraft carrier, the report said.
The HMS Queen Elizabeth, commissioned in 2017, is the lead ship of the Queen Elizabeth class of aircraft carriers, the largest warships ever built for the Royal Navy. It is capable of carrying up to 60 aircraft.
The report noted that while the offence may appear relatively minor, it was felt that his position had become untenable and that the commanding officer must be beyond reproach.
"We can only say that management action is ongoing and it would therefore be inappropriate to comment further," he said.
