Big Liz – the first of the Royal Navy’s two new aircraft carriers – will be tasked on sailing in the region amid the ongoing dispute over the South China Sea.

Britain stands in opposition to China’s claims along with the US, with Washington regularly sailing warships through in a message to Beijing.
