Sailors from British Navy nuclear submarine disrupt operation to track Russian submarines
The day before, the sailors had fun at a local party.
Seven sailors of a nuclear submarine of Great Britain have been caught using cocaine. They were removed from service right before sailing, The Daily Mail reports.
According to the publication, the submarine was to begin operations to track Russian submarines in the North Sea. After the submarine arrived at the naval base in Devonport, where its crew had to prepare for the “secret” mission beyond the Arctic Circle, some of the sailors went to a local party. In the morning, seven of them failed a drug test.
After the results of the analysis were confirmed, the divers were handed over to the military police, and the departure of HMS Talent was postponed. The submarine is now looking for new sailors to collect a full-fledged team.
It should be added that the HMS Talent nuclear submarine (S 92) is the sixth in a series of seven submarines of the Trafalgar class of the Royal Navy of Great Britain. The submarine was commissioned in May 1990; it is the carrier of Tomahawk cruise missiles.
