The captain of USS The Sullivans - which is protecting HMS Queen Elizabeth on her maiden operational voyage - has told Forces News his crew are “ready for anything”.

The UK’s Carrier Strike Group recently spent several weeks in the Eastern Mediterranean where the first operational sorties were flown in the fight against so-called Islamic State over Iraq.

Sian Grzeszczyk and camera operator Hannah King report from on board the American destroyer when she docked in Cyprus - the only journalists to be granted access.
