Sunday 27 October 2013
Eleven significant safety incidents have taken place at two nuclear submarine bases in Britain in the past five years, the Ministry of Defence has revealed.
The extent of the problems at the Faslane base on Gare Loch, Scotland, and Devonport, Plymouth, was revealed by Defence Minister Philip Dunne after a parliamentary question from SNP defence spokesman Angus Robertson.
Mr Robertson told the Sunday Herald that the answers made “scary reading”. “They concern the most serious types of incidents, and information wouldn’t be made public without asking,” he said.
