Portsmouth have had to move their plans for a new stadium because the Royal Navy intends to base two new super aircraft carriers close to the original site.

The Hampshire club have shifted the site for the 36,000 seater stadium to Horsea Island from the Hard where its proximity to the Royal Navy base was a cause for what the club described as "operational and security concerns".

Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie is confident the move will not delay the new ground and said: "The club is delighted that the Royal Navy here in Portsmouth is to be the home for the new carriers and destroyers."
