HMS Prince of Wales touched bottom?

The new carrier was conducting trials when she apparently hit something on the sea bed (what was she doing in such shallow water?). The ship returned to port suffering some damage to a propeller shaft. Divers will be sent down to determine the extent of the problem. She may need to be docked (in Amsterdam?). This may affect her scheduled employment.
